The Meadow Gold Milk Sign in Tulsa, OK is a classic Route 66 neon sign.
From the 1930s through the 1970s, this sign advertised the Meadow Gold Milk dairy on which it was located and lit the way for countless nighttime travelers along Tulsa’s stretch of Route 66. Many a trucker, traveler, soldier, pedestrian, or beatnik relied on the two clocks that sat on the tip top of the sign for the current time.
Sometime during the 1970s, Meadow Gold Milk went out of business and the vacant building itself was torn down thirty-some years later. Fortunately, the Tulsa Foundation for Architecture and a group of history aficionados went to work rescuing the sign before the building’s demolition. In 2009, it was re-erected at another location a little further down the street at the corner of 11th and Quaker, where it continues to be both a Tulsa and Route 66 landmark.
In November of 2016, replicas of the original clocks (which were stolen off the sign some 40 years ago) were installed onto the sign and it is once again telling the time to passers-by!
