Only in Oklahoma would you find an oil rig on the grounds of the state capitol. To be honest, I'm surprised there aren't more around town as the three most prominent images of Oklahoma I had before our visit were cowboys, indians, and oil. The...More

This was only a drive by and we saw that the building is undergoing renovation and it was also on a Sunday morning and it was closed. A thing of note is that there is an oil Derrick on the front lawn.
