UPDATE 12/08 : The Meadow Gold sign that was removed from Route 66 in Tulsa, OK a few years ago will be returning to Route 66 near its original site in January. According to the December 5, 2008 Tulsa's World article, the sign is almost fully restored and will be located at the intersection of Quaker Avenue and 11th Street.

 

UPDATE 05/09 : The historic Meadow Gold sign has been restored and now sits at 11th Street and Quaker Avenue. According to Route 66 News, a dedication ceremony was held on May 22 and by the looks of things, the Meadow Gold sign looks as good as ever. The sign had been dismantled from its original location at the SW Corner of 11th & Lewis in 2004 as originally reported in Preservation Alley. 05/09

Here is an archived posting from Preservation Alley 2004

Tulsa, OK --- A familiar Tulsa landmark needs help.

The immense Meadow Gold rooftop sign in Tulsa, OK has been donated to a preservation group by the generous new owner of its building.

The OK Route 66 Association is asking you to assist the Tulsa Foundation for Architecture with its efforts to relocate the sign by sending a donation TODAY — in any amount you can afford.

The foundation is a nonprofit organization, so your donation is tax-deductible.
