The State Historic Preservation Office announced the new listings on Monday.

Beattie's Prairie located in Delaware County is where Cherokees arrived and resettled following their forced location to Indian Country.

The Logan Apartments in Norman are located near the University of Oklahoma and provided private housing to both students and faculty. The Woodward Park and Gardens Historic District in Tulsa includes the first municipal rose garden established in the state.

Bartlesville's Washington County Memorial Hospital was the county's only hospital for three decades.

Two Muskogee properties also made the list — the Masonic Temple and the First Methodist Episcopal Church. Both have Classical Revival architecture styling.
