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 national 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.
