|Groundbreaking for the Oral Roberts University campus began in 1962. The university officially opened in 1965. Architect Frank Wallace designed 23 of the buildings. Two of the most famous include the Howard Auditorium, a geodesic dome, and the Prayer Tower. The Prayer Tower is 200 feet tall and was completed in 1967. It was built to resemble a modern-day cross with a stylized crown of thorns. Timko Barton Hall was designed by Cecil Stanfield who designed the original master plan. The City of Faith Medical and Research Center, now the CityPlex Towers, was built in 1981. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3. [map]|
