Only in OK Show


Aug 30, 2021

On today's episode of the Only in OK Show, we take you on a audio visit to Lucille's Service Station in Hyrdo, Oklahoma.
 
Lucille's Service Station, a classic and historic gas station along Route 66 near Hydro, is one of only two upper-story, out-thrust porch style stations left on Oklahoma's stretch of Route 66. Built in 1929 by Carl Ditmore, the service station was renamed to Provine Station in the 1930s. In 1941, the Hamons family took over the operation of the station.
 
Founded on August 6, 1901, built near the Choctaw, Oklahoma and Gulf Railroad, the settlement was originally called "Caddo", but when the post office was established in September 1901, the name was changed to "Hydro" in reference to the town's plentiful well water.
 
Route 66. U.S. Highway 66 is popularly known as Route 66 or the Mother Road and holds a special place in American consciousness and evokes images of simpler times, mom and pop businesses, and the icons of a mobile nation on the road.
 
We also discussed Soldier Creek Industrial Park Trail, MWC, Hub Bike Park LLC and the Midwest City Beacon.
