Historic Restorations

Bruce Goff Play Tower

In June of 2014, the city of Bartlesville entrusted us to restore the historic Bruce Goff designed Play Tower located at Sooner Park.

We were selected for the project after an exhaustive search by city officials to find a dependable resource that could undertake a project with such a significant and historical value to the citizens of Bartlesville.

The restoration was completed in five months and the Play Tower was returned to Sooner Park in October 2014.

Re-create Nellie Johnstone No. 1

Nellie Johnstone No. 1, the first commercial oil well in Oklahoma

STC-SMC team was responsible for the restoration of the Nellie Johnstone No. 1, the first commercial oil well in Oklahoma. The restoration effort included creating a near authentic replica of the 1890’s era drilling rig that is operational, including a gusher feature above the 84-foot tall derrick. The rig was designed and built to withstand the elements including flooding that occurs as the Nellie sits on the banks of the Caney River.

Additional Projects for the city of Bartlesville

We have been honored to work with the city of Bartlesville on several projects, including the relocation of the AT&SF Locomotive 940 to its current home near the Bartlesville Visitor’s Center.

A-4 Skyhawk

STC performed the detailed design and SMC manufactured the support structure to display an A-4 Skyhawk fighter plane. The unique design of the structure displays the airplane not only as taking off but also banking to the left. STC also made arrangements with Cessna Aircraft to repaint the jet as it was in use during the Vietnam era.
