Water Tower Wednesday – Woolaroc

Woolaroc Watertower.jpg

SuperPizzaBoy ventured to Oklahoma’s Woolaroc last Saturday and spent some time hiking the trails, photographing the critters and perusing the art in the museum. The ranch was built in the early 20th century and is totally old school including this water tower.

I just love Woolaroc. It started out as the ranch of oilman Frank Phillips who kept all sorts of exotic game animals there and a private art collection that just grew and grew until he built a museum to house it. It has all sorts of wonderful old rock buildings. It is out in the middle of nowhere about twelve miles from Bartlesville.

I’m a follower of Out and About in New York City and FashhionistaNYC, the author, features the building top water towers in that city of which their may be thousands. We have very few building top water towers in Oklahoma but we have lots of free standing tanks.

    Great tower shot and this sounds like a very interesting place. Thanks for your comments on my Santa Fe post. They made me smile as always. Have a great day!

    I remember school trips to Woolaroc when I was a kid. It is definitely a place I would like to have a chance to visit again someday.

    Very cool. I love these towers. There are next to none that I know of in CT. I have wondered if there prevalence in certain places has something to do with the topography, geography, or whatever.

    That water tower looks a little sinister against your edited sky! I haven’t seen a water tower in years (well- since I was in OK).

    I’m thinking Bartlesville might be in the middle of nowhere too. But that could be because I have never heard of it. But hey! I bet East Gwillimbury sounds foreign to you. 😉
