Long Description:
According to the Roadside Architecture web page (about 2/3rds down the page), this station was built at the Bartlesville Municipal Airport in 1927, and was in service until 1948. Bartlesville was the home of Frank Phillips, the founder of the Phillips 66 company. What that web site does not tell you, is that this station was moved from the airport to Woolaroc Ranch at the end of November, 2014 ("BACKYARD TOUR AFTER 30 YEARS OF MISSING IT"), where it sits along the main park road and one end of the picnic loop.

Woolaroc Ranch was a home-away-from-home for millionaire Frank Phillips, who also had a mansion (available for tours) in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. There is an excellent museum at Woolaroc Ranch, several collections of wildlife, and an animal petting area and playground for children. There is a cost for visiting the ranch (check the www.woolaroc.org web site for current prices), so it will cost you to visit this waymark. But you will be out nothing, because the rest of the ranch is worth the visit! Make sure you have at least 2 hours to spend here, with 3 or more being all the better.
