OCU law school renovations cited
Oklahoma City University’s School of Law was selected to receive the 2016 State Historic Preservation Officer’s Citation of Merit.
The award will be presented June 2 at the Statewide Preservation Conference in Enid.
The United Methodist-related university purchased the former Central High School building in 2012 and renovated it in time for classes in Fall 2014. The work also preserved a small museum space that features two large, restored murals by Oklahoma artist Olinka Hrdy.
The building was designed by architect Solomon Andrew Layton, who also designed the state Capitol and the Skirvin Hilton Hotel.
