— Tulsa's Historic Route 66 —

The original alignment of Route 66, from its initial designation in 1926
until 1932, came into Tulsa from the east along 11th Street. At Mingo
Road, it turned north for about one mile until it reached Federal Drive,
now Admiral Place. Route 66 ran west along Federal Drive (the dividing line between the Cherokee and Muscogee Creek Nations), now
Admiral Place towards downtown Tulsa. Although Route 66 aligned
with Admiral Place for only six years, those few years were sufficient
to cement the commercial character of the street as one that catered
to the needs of motorists with filling stations, restaurants, auto sales
and repair facilities.

At the intersection of East Admiral Place and Yale Avenue, filling
stations occupied three of the four corners. Only the northwest
corner, the edge of Rose Hill Cemetery, where Cyrus Avery is
buried, did not have a filling station. The Daugherty Ice Company.
at 4915 Admiral Place, occupied the low brick building east of one
filling station. The adjacent building, constructed c.1934, housed
furniture stores and other commercial ventures.

Although the buildings on the north side of Admiral Place from
Indianapolis Avenue to Jamestown Avenue were constructed after
the re-alignment of Route 66, they reflect the popularity of the
architectural styles associated with movement and

the automobile
age. The curved corner of 3401 Admiral Place expresses the
streamlined moderne style while the low, flat rooflines and simple
masonry exteriors of the former restaurant at 3411 Admiral Place
and the store at 3419 Admiral Place express later iterations of the
Modern Movement.
