1. The Rock Island Plow Building Marker
Inscription.  The Rock Island Plow Building was constructed in 1909 by the Rock Island Plow Co., a subsidiary of the Rock Island Corporation of Chicago. Located next to the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad depot, the building was designed to serve as a wholesale distribution center, warehouse and showroom.

The Plow Building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983 but had fallen into disrepair since its registration. Registration #83002106 NRIS

In 2015 the building was fully restored and brought back into service by Rock Island Plow LLC. This redevelopment would not have been possible without the generous support of the City of Oklahoma city, Oklahoma City Economic Development Trust, the State Historic Preservation Office and the National Park Service.

Architect: Allford Hall Monaghan Morris
Contractor: Lingo Construction
