Route 66 Historical Village
Located along historic Southwest Boulevard in Tulsa, the Route 66 Historical Village is an open-air museum with fully restored remnants from the city's early days. Visitors driving along Route 66 or I-244 can't miss this fun attraction, which seeks to educate and inspire others to learn the history of Tulsa's oil, refining and transportation industries.
Grab your camera and make a pit stop at the Route 66 Historical Village to see a restored Frisco 4500 Steam Engine, passenger car, caboose and oil derrick. The oil derrick stands 194 feet high and is the historic site of the first oil strike on June 25, 1901 that makes Tulsa the "Oil Capital of the World."
The Route 66 Historical Village also includes the Route 66 Village Station, a tourism information center modeled after a 1920s-1930s gas station. Take a break from driving and admire the Phillips 66 cottage-style architectural design. Step inside the Route 66 Village Station to relax at the coffee bar, use the restrooms and view the giant Route 66 map.
