Ringling Road Station - Ardmore, OK

Above the three windows on the top floor of this neat old building, etched in stone it reads - 19 RINGLING ROAD STATION 15 - This New Mexico and Pacific Railroad Depot was built in 1915 in Ardmore, Oklahoma. It is at the corner of Washington and Northeast 3rd Street.
It is now the home of the American Legion George R. Anderson Post 65. My sister-in-law said her mother loved to play bingo at this historical location. It was added to the National Register of Historic places in 1982.
Ninety-six years later it is still a beautiful landmark. Ardmore, Oklahoma has so many great old buildings and things to see that one weekend trip did not allow for all of the sight seeing I wanted to do. These photos were made in the rain which also dampened my photo experience. If you ever get down I-35 south to Ardmore take some time and drive around this beautiful old community.
