In the 1940s, a large Meadow Gold sign was put up atop a small building at 11th and Lewis in Tulsa. Once the property of Beatrice Food Company, both the company and the Meadow Gold brand enjoyed prosperity during the heydays of the 1940's. The sign stood as a beacon on Route 66 for some sixty years, until in 2004, the building, along with the sign was sold.
.

 

 

The new owner planned to demolish both the building and the sign; however, through the efforts of the National Park Service Route 66 Corridor Program, the  National Trust for Historic Preservation, Tulsa Foundation for Architecture, and the Oklahoma Route 66 Association, the sign was saved. After several years of additional fund raising, the sign is now fully restored.

 

On May 22, 2009, a Route 66 Memorial building, topped with the restored sign was dedicated at 11th Street and Quaker Avenue.
