Five Oklahoma buildings will not be fading into the pages of history now that they've been added to the National Register of Historic Places. They get some protection, and possibly even financial incentives to protect them.

The Larkin Hotel in Blackwell was built in the early '20s and still has much of its historic details. St. Philip's Episcopal Church, a black church in Muskogee, is the city's only real example of Tudor-revival architecture.

Muskogee Municipal Building was also chosen for the registry with its combination architecture - mixing classic revival and 'restrained' art deco.

The Cherokee Apartments in Enid were built in the late '30s to provide a place to live for families who lost everything in the Great Depression.

The James H. Bounds Barn down in Marshall County was built sometime before 1895. It was chosen because of it's the only example of its architecture in the entire state.
