Driving west on Rt. 66 from Oklahoma City one comes on to this scene. Home to Yukon's Best Flour. I was still eating my bisquits from this flour when I graduated from highschool in 1963.
Directly across the street was the Dobry Mills. Both Mills have been long gone for a long time.
This is the back side of the grain elevators which stored the golden grain until it could be ground into flour. This was our largest employer until the early 60's. The Mill ran three shifts of workers, produced the towns electricity, (electric bills were paid at mill office), and the 5 O'Clock whistle was blown everyday.
All of the buildings containing the flour sifters and baggers, warehouses, and truck and maintenance yards are all a memory. These structures are all that remain.
