The Aberdeen. The area immediately north of the central business district was once abundant with apartments. One which remains is The Aberdeen, built in 1927. It was designed by Hawk & Parr, architects, Charles Dunning Construct Co., contractor. It became Oklahoma City's tallest, if not finest, apartment building at 7 stories plus a full usable and furnished basement. It was sold in 1930 for $465,000 to Carr and Cleat Peterson, bankers from Haskell, Oklahoma. A full page December 25, 1927, Oklahoman ad, cropped below, invited the public to view the new facility. Click the image for the full page advertisement which gives a description of the facility. The 2nd image is a 1939 photo, credit OHS's Star Archives. The 3rd image is a photo I took in 2008.
