Bristow Train Depot

1 Railroad Place, Bristow, OK

The 1923 Bristow Train Depot has been restored and houses a variety of displays sponsored by the Bristow Historical Society. The museum has limited hours.

The depot was originally built by the SLSF (Frisco) Railroad as part of a route between Sapulpa & Oklahoma City. It was almost destroyed, but restored instead, in the early 1980s by the Burlington Northern but the Bristow Historical Society went to court. The society won but had to agree to not have a restaurant or other high-traffic business in the building. As well as the museum it currently also houses the Bristol Chamber of Commerce.

xAlso on display here is Caboose #999334. Directly across from the depot is a plaza leading to Main St.

x About Us We started traveling Historic U.S. Route 66 as a destination in 2009. It's like a 2,400 mile long drive back in time from Chicago to Santa Monica! more
xDid You Know: Many parts of the old 4 lane Route 66 were reverted to a 2 lane road after 66 was realigned to the interstate. In many places the abandoned lanes are still there.
