Overview

Mid-20th Century historic resources are abundant in Oklahoma City, in both individual landmark structures and numerous neighborhoods throughout the city. Most residents do not regard these areas as special or worthy of the effort required to use preservation as a tool. Long-range planners evaluate how, where and why preservation may be an appropriate revitalization tool and how to generate community support for preservation in this context. An architectural historian specializing in Mid-Centry houses of worship analyzes a handful of OKC's landmark religious structures and how the group she founded. The "Okie Mod Squad" is building a new generation of preservationists for resources from the recent past.
