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 an 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 foot company, Braum's.
