“Threatt Filling Station Rehabilitation Project” Lunch and Learn webinar

September 13, 2023, 12 p.m.1 p.m.

Event Navigation

On Wednesday, September 13, at noon, the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) will host a free Lunch and Learn webinar exploring the historical significance of the Threatt Family Farm and its centerpiece, the Threatt Filling Station.
In 2020, a Historic Structures Report noted the station was in disrepair, requiring extensive rehabilitation. In 2021, the Station was included in the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s List of America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places.

Preservation efforts are underway to restore the Black-owned and operated station along Route 66, known as a haven for Black travelers during the Jim Crow era. The featured presenters will be three cousins, the grandchildren of Allen and Alberta Threatt, Linda D. Fisher, Edward D. Threatt, and Charles David Threatt. These family members have combined their talents and resources to preserve, rehabilitate, and reopen the historic station as an Oklahoma destination ahead of the US Route 66 Centennial in 2026. Kristina Wyckoff, SHPO Section 106 coordinator and historical archaeologist, will lead the discussion.
