“The site and its emphasis on the city’s history is a hot fudge sundae for those of us who love history and those who lived it, like Swift & Company General Manager Millard McCarville, who’d wave goodbye to his wife, three daughters and baby son at Northwest 29th and Classen every morning when he got on the trolley to go to work in what’s now Bricktown.”

Retro and relevant.
Oklahoma City’s history is going retro.
