Signs, Signs – White Dog Hill


Up high on a hill overlooking Clinton, Oklahoma right on Route 66, just off Interstate 40 in western Oklahoma sits a restaurant called White Dog on the Hill


Heather’s family gathered in Clinton a couple weeks ago to celebrate her aunt and uncle’s 60th wedding anniversary. We had a reception at a church followed by dinner at the White Dog.


The White Dog has been a restaurant for several years by now but before that the building was long abandoned and even further back it used to be a country way back when. My Mother in Law told of high school sorority dances at the club and her father’s standing tee time Sunday afternoon’s at 1:30. I just love history like that. I also old buildings being brought back to life.


Especially by owners with a sense of history and a respect for local traditions.


And you know something else they know how to cook the food was good. And even further they provide good service and really are committed to you enjoying yourself.


We have a few years to go but maybe Heather and I can celebrate our 60th anniversary there. What do you think?

    I also love seeing old buildings brought back to use with a respect for their history. This looks like a great example and a very fun place.

    Great looking place! I love it when people save/renew old buildings! Heather looks more beautiful with every photo!! Hope your week is going well!

    Looks like the kind of place to celebrate anything any time. Hope you don’t wait until you 60th Anniversary. Why not make it a multi-decade celebration.

    Whenever I see the words Route 66 it always reminds me of the TV show from the 60’s. The White Dog has some very attractive signs. Don’t worry about the 60th anniversary, you two will make it.

    Looks a super place to celebrate a 60th anniversary. If the owners keep up their good work, I think that’s the place for you and Heather to celebrate your 60th. Meanwhile, why not celebrate a few anniversaries with smaller numbers there?

    Sure you can — but you can also celebrate the intervening anniversaries there or somewhere else neat.

    Country Clubs used to be real important in the little Pacific Northwest town where we grew up. My parents didn’t golf, but it was the center of their social life.l
