Christ's
Outpost RV Park
Claremore, OK
Round-up Motel [gone]
Claremore, OK
The Christ's Outpost RV Park is probably from the 1950s or 1960s. The sign was in bad shape in 2016. This photo is from 2019. I don't know if this was always an RV Park or if "Christ's" name was added later. For more, see this website. [map]

The Round-up Motel is long gone. This sign was restored and is now part of a private collection. In 2007, when this photo was taken, it was on display inside the Tulsa Convention Center, now the Cox Business Center. I don't know if that was a temporary exhibit or if it is still there. For more, see this website. [photo thanks Glenda Campbell]

The Signs of the Times Event Center opened around 2015. It is owned by Larry White and the interior features many signs and antiques from the owner's, Larry White, collection. There is also an opal glass drug store sign on display. The space is rented for weddings, business and group gatherings, birthdays, and other events.
