Notes on the Geography of Oklahoma: Downtown Oklahoma City: Photo 29

world pictures Oklahoma: Downtown Oklahoma City

Central High School, opened as Oklahoma City High School in 1910, was designed by the indefatigable Solomon Layton, this time flying without columns or pilasters. The building was an all-white school until 1967, it then became a trade school, a junior high, and an "innovative high." None lasted. In 1976 the building, though closed, was put on the National Register of Historic Places. In 1981 Southwest Bell bought it for conversion into its regional headquarters. The interior was gutted and entirely rebuilt in the shell of the old building; the work, designed by HTB Architects, won first place in the American Society of Interior Designers' project design competition of 1985.
