Skywatch Friday - Blue Dome


The Blue Dome was built in 1924 and served as a Gulf Oil Station. This was the first station in Oklahoma to have hot water, pressurized air and a car wash. It was also open 24 hours, seven days a week. The station attendant lived upstairs in the dome itself. It is now something of a landmark and an icon for downtown Tulsa.  The area around the dome is known as the Blue Dome District and is the site of many restaurants and clubs.

Something tells me that would have been an awesome place to call home in the 20's. Thanks for sharing the history of the building. Have a blessed week-end.
