Milk Bottle Grocery
The Milk Bottle Grocery building in Oklahoma City's Asian District is a fun and unique Route 66 landmark. The wedge-shaped building was constructed in the 1930s, but the giant milk bottle on top that makes it a popular photo stop along the Mother Road was not added until 1948. Fifty years later, it was accepted as a historic site and added to the National Register of Historic Places.
The building itself has been home to many businesses including a cleaners, sandwich shop, fruit market, grocery store, barbecue shack and a realty office. Located only a few feet from Classen Boulevard, it is seen by thousands of people every day as they drive through Oklahoma City on Route 66. As a result, many dairy companies have paid to have their logo painted on the giant milk bottle as a form of advertising including the Oklahoma dairy and fast food company, Braum's.
