OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A Blackwell hotel once listed as endangered and a black church in Muskogee are among five new listings to the National Register of Historic Places.
The Oklahoma State Historic Preservation Office says the Larkin Hotel in downtown Blackwell was built in the 1920s. It was listed on Preservation Oklahoma's Most Endangered Properties List in 2012. The St. Philip's Episcopal Church in Muskogee was built in 1931.
Both properties have been placed on the nation's official list of properties considered significant to the country's past.
Also placed on the list were the Cherokee Terrace Apartments in Enid, the James H. Bounds Barn in Marshall County and the Muskogee Municipal Building.
Listing on the National Register provides recognition, limited protection and, in some cases, financial incentives for important properties.
