    Information & Latest News

    Organized before 1900 in Texas, Magnolia became the Southwest's largest pipeline/distribution firm. Expanding into Oklahoma, the aggressive company entered the exploration field and retail sales operations. By 1918 the firm's operations in Oklahoma mandated a large, centralized headquarters building, so company officials hired the architectural firm of Hawk and Parr to design a suitable building. The result was a five-story brick office building with a drive-through filling station on the ground level. The structure's arches and stonework made it a landmark on the north side of town. Magnolia remained in the building until 1960, when Mobil Oil Company purchased the company. After 1960 the archways were filled with cinder blocks in an attempt to attract a new tenant, all to no avail. After sitting empty for more than fifteen years, the old structure was listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is finally being renovated for office space.

    Went to a party Saturday night at the Magnolia on the 5th floor. Space is pretty rough right now, but what great bones. Perfect spot for a medium sized company to have their HQ. Nice parking lot across the street and great views up and down AA. Anyone know what the plans are for this 5th floor space?

    I believe they are just hoping to rent it out.

    See the ARTICLE tab above for lots more information about the building.
