Tour 5

Tour 5

A WPA tour revisited. Join our team as we retrace the historic tour 5. The full tour stretches from Junction US 271 to US 270, but we focused on a portion of section b from Seminole to Harrah, Oklahoma. During our trip, our group paid special mind to the characteristics that make this early 20th century tour relevant today. 

In creating this exhibit our group first took the tour in its original format--seeking to identify and discover the key historical landmarks from the WPA guide. In visiting the cities along the route we soon discovered our guidebook was in sore need of an update. Some destinations no longer exist and, more importantly, there are quite a few locations that deserve acknowledgement. It is with the goal of new-found relevance that we have approached this exhibit--enjoy!
