— Tulsa's Historic Route 66 —

The Blue Dome Historic District has a long connection to
Tulsa's history. It developed in the early 1900s with businesses
serving the nearby railroad lines. After the designation of
Route 66 through the district in 1926, automobile traffic
increased and the area flourished. Gas stations, repair shops,
and service stations, as well as hotels, soon lined the streets
south of the warehouses and factories associated with the
nearby railroads. The Blue Dome Historic District continues to
be an important commercial enclave in downtown Tulsa. It was
listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2011.

White Star Service Station
318-324 E. 2nd Street

The White Star Service Station was designed by Lawrence Blue
and Fred Knoblock and constructed in 1925. In addition to the
distinct form and roof color, it was unique as Tulsa's first filling
station with compressed air pumps and restrooms with hot
and cold running water and 24-hour service. The iconic dome
originally served as living quarters for the filling station
attendant. This Tulsa icon was listed as a contributing
resource in the National Register of Historic Places in
2011 as part of the Blue Dome Historic District.
