Milk Bottle Grocery

2426 N Classen Blvd., OKC, OK

East < GO > West

This little building on the 1926 - 1930 alignment of Route 66 was built in 1930 and sits on a tiny triangle shaped piece of land which led to it being called the Triangle Grocery and Market. When the giant milk bottle was added in 1948 the building became known as the Milk Bottle Grocery. Though the building isn't a grocery anymore the milk bottle continues to advertise only dairy products. The building was renovated in 2014.


At about 350 square feet the building is smaller than most two car garages. It looks like the milk bottle is somewhere around 7 or 8 feet wide and maybe 18 to 20 feet tall, not includeing the frame under it.


This mural occupies what was a window on the back of the little building reads "Oklahoma City: Where the Thunder Rolls". This building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1998.

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.
