N Touring The capitol is a fine place to start a tour of the city, and you can arrive by the interstate to save time. From I-40, exit onto US235 and go north to 23rd Street. Turn east to the State Capitol at 2300 Lincoln Blvd. Don’t look for a dome. There isn’t one. When the building was built in Roman Corinthian style between 1914 and 1917, the state legislature couldn’t justify the expense of adding a dome. During the depression and two world wars, a dome was out of the question. Various proposals have been debated over the years, but, at this time, there are no plans for putting anything on top of the rather austere building.

405-275-3121 or 800-880-9880. North of town, on SH-18 (exit 186), three buildings hold 242 antique and special cars at Bob Townsend’s Antique and Classic Cars. Mr. Townsend began collecting cars 40 years ago, and his museum holds Mae West’s 1938 V-16 Cadillac, Elvis Presley’s 1956 Lincoln Mark II V-8, a 1901 Oldsmobile, and a 1906 Maxwell Roadster. Admission for adults is $3, but only $2 if you’re a senior citizen or part of a car club group. Groups can make appointments for a tour, but the museum is open to the public Friday, Saturday, and Monday from noon to 6 pm, % 405-275-1930 or 405-273-0330.

It has survived in top condition because the town was deserted in a flash when Governor Charles N. Haskell moved the state seal from Guthrie to Oklahoma City on the night of June 11, 1910 and proclaimed the Lee Huckins Hotel the new capitol. Mahogany and brass trollies give 45-minute tours on the hour from 10 am to 5 pm, Monday through Saturday, and on the quarter-hour from 1:15 pm to 5:15 pm on Sunday. Tickets are $2 for adults and $1 for senior citizens and kids. First Capital Trolley is located at 1st Street and Vilas Avenue, and you can park at a lot on the corner of 1st Street and Harrison.
