The Arcade Hotel Mural in Ponca City highlights the 1920s hotel and guests who frequently stayed there, including E.W. Marland of Marland Oil, Will Rogers and the Miller Brothers, who founded the 101 Ranch and Wild West Show. This hotel once contained 100 rooms spread across three floors and housed constant streams of millionaires and celebrities, including Presidents Howard Taft and Theodore Roosevelt.

Palmer Studios Inc. also painted local children, Freddie Boettcher and Polly Vanselous Edwards of the Big “V” Ranch Family and Lew Wentz into this Ponca City mural. The painters also included vintage cars like a Buick convertible, a Marland Oil delivery truck, a La Salle and a Pierce Arrow. The Arcade Hotel Mural helps the structure live on even though the actual building was demolished in 1973.
