Lincoln Park and the OKC Zoo

"Welcome to the Oklahoma City Zoo!"

This exhibit highlights Lincoln Park and the Oklahoma City Zoo during the 1930s focusing on the impact of construction projects completed with funding from federal agencies like the Works Project Administration and the Civilian Conservation Corps. This exhibit was created in Fall 2015.

We would like thank Amy Dee Stephens and Sherri Vance at the Oklahoma City Zoo for sharing their resources, time, and expertise. This project would not have been possible without them.
