Notes
Survey number HABS OK-32
Building/structure dates: 1931 initial construction
Significance: Oklahoma experienced its first real building boom with the discovery and intense exploitation of oil in the early 20th century, especially the 1920s. One of the most dominant architectural styles was Art Deco. The cities of Oklahoma City and Tulsa once had great numbers of structures in this style, both large and small, covering a wide range of types and situations. These are largely gone, especially the major structures. The buildings of the smaller towns, such as Stillwell, were influenced by the larger metropolitan centers in regard to style, and a surprising number of these may be found in remote rural areas. The courthouse of Adair County at Stilwell is a prime example of this. The details of the structure are characteristic of this style of architecture, much of which is largely unaltered.
