Historic Route 66 runs through the heart of Sayre, Oklahoma which was founded in 1901. East Main Street holds an iconic reminder of Sayre's significance on the road – the Beckham County Courthouse, which had a Hollywood moment when it appeared briefly in the classic film, "The Grapes of Wrath." This 1911 beauty built in a symmetrical blend of neo-classical and second Renaissance revival styles echoes a time when buildings reflected grace and grandeur. Just a few blocks away, the Shortgrass Country Museum exhibits displays of early life in western Oklahoma's shortgrass country. Sayre City Park features two Works Progress Administration gems: a red-stone pool house built in pueblo style in 1940, and just west of the pool, a sturdy wall crafted from the same stone.
