Midwest City, Oklahoma's Atkinson Plaza

The Sooner State's planned community on the prairie came into being in 1942. Its trendsetting design generated a great deal of publicity and inspired large-scale, post-war developments such as Levittown {New York}, Levittown {Pennsylvania}, Park Forest {Illinois} and Lakewood {California}. In 1951, Midwest City was designated America's Model City...as the sign attests.
