Downtown Bartlesville, OK

Bartlesville was built as a result of the oil boom in the late 1800's.  Phillips Petroleum was founded there in 1917 becoming Bartlesville's largest employer and one of the nation's top oil companies.

The city houses some lovely architectural attractions including the Price Tower.  Built in 1956, it is the tallest building designed and built by Frank Lloyd Wright.  The building was constructed with no ninety degree angles.
