1. Automobile Alley Historic District. During the 1920s Automobile Alley, A-Alley for short, was a popular auto row, home to more than 2/3rds of the city's car dealerships for several decades in the 1900s. Numerous national and international brands had showrooms in Automobile Alley and the district thrived as a commercial hub for the state until the decline of downtown Oklahoma City during the 1970s and 1980s.

3. Oklahoma City's Hadden Hall represents new apartments but it's been home for 100 years. Hadden Hall recently underwent renovation to become downtown apartments, but the 100-year-old structure started life as an apartment hotel. A remarkable woman, who may have been the building's longest resident, was Miss Helen Ferris of Apartment 106. Ferris, an English teacher from Illinois, joined the faculty of Central High School when it opened in 1910 and probably moved into Hadden Hall in 1912. Ferris was respected and loved by the thousands of students she taught — her former students nominated her for Oklahoma City's Most Useful Citizen of 1936. From 1941 until her death in 1951, she rarely left her apartment because of a medical condition, but with nearly 3,000 former students a year visiting her, and with her books, needlework, telephone and letters, she was never lonely.
