Frank Lloyd Wright’s Price Tower, Bartlesville OK (Scarborough photo) Close-up of copper cladding on Price Tower (Scarborough photo)

You never know what you’ll find on a road trip.

Did you know that architect Frank Lloyd Wright‘s only skyscraper was built in 1956 in Bartlesville, Oklahoma?

Today the soaring, slender Price Tower with its distinctive verdigris-copper-clad exterior houses an exhibit area, a swanky restaurant and an upscale hotel.

We admired the exterior during a jaunt through northeast Oklahoma (after a little Chisholm Trail history) as part of our ongoing Midwest Road Trip tour of the “Square States.”

All kinds of goodies out in the wide open spaces….
