Born near downtown (St. Anthony's) in 1943, I returned to my birth city while in law school in 1965-68, and, after a stint in the Army, permanently in 1970. I'm proud to say that Oklahoma City is my hometown of both birth and choice! Here, you will find a detailed clickable map to current downtown Oklahoma City buildings as well as vintage pictures beginning with the April 1889 Land Run that got Oklahoma City a place on the map! All pages are linked together so you can start from where/what you want, below. Pages will open in separate windows. If you find mistakes, or if you have downtown images you'd like to contribute, please feel free to send me an e-mail: Click here to E-mail me a message.
