In the spring of 1898 William Harrison Odor built what would become known as Arcadia's Round Barn. The two story barn is 60' across and 45' high and has no rafters. It sits on the north side of the road that became the Mother Road, Route 66, and across the highway from the MKT tracks and the Arcadia, OK depot. By 1988 the tracks and depot had been abandoned and removed. The badly deteriorated barn was donated to the Arcadia Historical and Preservation Society in an attempt to save it. With the efforts of many volunteers, the restored Round Barn now stands as a roadside attraction along old Route 66 about 23 miles northeast of Oklahoma City. The pictures are from 1900, 1950, 1988 and 2000 and show the deterioration of the barn before it was restored in the 1990's.
