Description

The Pecan Bowl was constructed as a Works Progress Administration (WPA) project. “Stadiums, like schools, came in many styles and colors, perhaps according to available rock or style of the nearby school. The Pecan Bowl in Okemah is especially attractive. The Okemah Stadium was built in an amphitheatre style, using a natural slope in the ground. It has dark red sandstone, typical of central and western Oklahoma.”
