Pretty neat looking dome. Never new it was a benchmark.

Dome maintained and in good shape. Painted gold these days.

Pretty easy find at night with it all light up for us.

Wow, hasn't been found in 2 years. I'm not sure if the dome is the same as back then, but it's in the right position, close enough for me. The building is now called Preparatory Hall at Rogers State University, Claremore, Oklahoma.

Found the dome afte dark. The building looked great all lit up. The pics did not turn out as well as I had hoped. I will be returning with better equipment for a night shoot first chance I get.

I took summer classes here an eternety and had not been back. I was very happy to see some of the improvements, and some of the things that had not changed.
