Hospitality never goes out of style
If buildings could talk, the Colcord would tell you it's seen some changes over the last century - from its own contemporary renovations to the burgeoning development of nearby businesses.
When the Colcord Building was completed in 1910, at 12 stories, it was the first skyscraper in Oklahoma City. Every luxury of the time was incorporated in the construction, many of which remain today: The original marble still adorns the columns and walls of the main lobby; the original nickel and bronze letterbox and elevator doors still shine; and the original ornamental plaster ceiling still crowns the space. This landmark was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.
