Oklahoma's Most Endangered Places
For the second year in a row, the Oklahoma state Capitol has made a list of the most endangered places in the state.
The list recognizes historic sites across Oklahoma at risk of demolition or deterioration and raises awareness about the need to preserve them.
The 400,000-square-foot state Capitol building has been plagued with structural, plumbing and electrical problems and is in need of repairs.
The Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Westhope and the J. Paul Getty House in Tulsa also made the list. Other places on the list include the Chilocco Indian School, the Union Bus Station and surrounding block in Oklahoma City and the Eastern Oklahoma Tuberculosis Sanatorium in Talihina.
