Oklahoma City Off The Beaten Path: 41 reviews and 36 photos

  Oklahoma, a la San Antonio
by mrclay2000
 
 

Several large paintings in the upper galleries depict Oklahoma statesmen and personalities, including Will Rogers, Jim Thorpe and Sequoyah, the Cherokee syllabrist. Higher still on the walls are even larger murals depicting 450 years of Oklahoma History, starting from the time when Coronado first stepped first in what would become "Oklahoma," a Choctaw word meaning "land of the red man." Though our Spanish heritage has much dissipated, Spain was the first European power to mingle with the Native Americans here.
