This is the 2 houses on 63rd east of Kelly and north of the service rd. One is a standard Oklahoma red stone country house built in 1935 and has pathways that lead all over the property and gardens. On the other side, there is a very large modern house built in 1949 connected to the other one via a stone bridge with a swimming pool in the middle of it. The property is owned by Arcadia Farms which is a Chesapeake family company.

Sadly the older rock dwelling has been demolished. The other boarded up dwelling with the pool still remains for some reason.

The people here simply found the place to be beautiful. I'm thrilled to hear that you're moving in, that certainly means you'll be fixing it up(thankfully) There's no need to be so harsh though.

We actually lived in the two story home from 1981 – 1985. Prior to us, my art professor from UCO and his family lived there. The property belonged to Jerry Baker, who resided in Guthrie. His offices were in the modern home with the swimming pool. Mr. Baker told us that his mother built the 1935 building. She was a doctor and this was the first home for unwed mothers in the state of Oklahoma. Sometime much later, I believe in the 60s or 70s, after Doc Baker retired, it became Hill Hospital, which was an alcoholics rehabilitation institution. Some… Read more »

I am actually from Alabama and passed this property on the way to a game at the WCWS. I asked many locals what the story was with the property and buildings. I wanted to know what it was and the history of who lived there. It was only until a few days ago that two ladies I met at the World Cup Series found and emailed this site to me. I can't help wonder about the owners who built this and the family who lived there. In 1935 and 1949 this had to have been an incredible home. Wonder if… Read more »

I've always been interested i these buildings. It's a shame that Chesapeake owns the land. The buildings are so much prettier than a gas or oil well.

Love the red sandstone.

I'm sure it was quarried somewhere locally just like the old bath-house and other old buidings nearby at the zoo, as well as a few older homes, particularly along NE 50th (East of I-35).

I kinda wonder if some of the sandstone might have been cut out from the old cliffs that you can see remnants of them in the small park locted on the east side of Zoo Lake (between the Lake and Lincoln Park Golf Course).

Just really Aubrey does something with it, and doesn't just scrape it off.

It is a extremely useful web page. I just wish all web sites possessed this unique kind of content. I just hope your own site can easily develop along with obtain more visitors.

This property was up for sale some years ago and they cleared out the grounds enough for realtors to show it. We took the opportunity then to walk around and it was amazing to see all the rock landscaping that had been done around the red stone house. Soooo wanted this place……sooooo couldn't afford it!

Damn Chesapeake. They own everything in this town. You would think they would liquadate an asset like this. It's worth pennies in their eyes.
