— Tulsa's Historic Route 66 —

Commercial development of S. Quanah (sometimes spelled
"Quannah") Avenue between W. 21st Street and W. 22nd
Place took off after World War II as businesses relocated
from the older commercial center in the 1700 block to this
newer area.

OTASCO (Oklahoma Tire and Supply Company) was one such
business. Founded in Okmulgee in 1918 as a retail outlet for
tires and auto accessories, the growing company moved its
headquarters to Tulsa in 1925. It had 34 stores across the
state by 1936, including OTASCO No. 7 at 1723 S. Quanah.
By the mid-1950s, OTASCO No. 7 had moved to the corner
of W. 22nd Street and S. Quanah. Shepherd's Department
Store and Community State Bank also relocated.
Other long-standing businesses at this node included
Burgess Hardware, Potter's Hatchery & Feed Store, Dooley
Pharmacy, C. R. Young Five & Dime and Glencliff Dairy.
These busineses provided goods and services to residents
as well as motorists passing through the area.
