Built by legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright in 1956, the Price Tower is the pinnacle of modern architecture with its unique concrete and copper design. The building was originally designed by Wright for downtown New York City in 1929, but it was never realized at the time due to the hardships of the Great Depression. As his only fully realized skyscraper, Wright embraced the opportunity to build his tower in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, where it became home to H.C. Price Company pipeline headquarters in 1956. Considered one of the great buildings of the 20th century, this immaculate tower was named a National Historic Landmark in 2007, and in 2020, was named one of CNN’s most “Famous Buildings in the American South”, one of sixteen sites to receive such honors. The former oil and gas company now functions as the Price Tower Arts Center. Daily tours are available for this property, which is also home to an art gallery, the Inn at Price Tower, a nineteen-room boutique hotel, and the Copper Restaurant + Bar, which offers some of Osage County’s finest dining from Wright Chef Jordan Keen with an unparalleled view of the rolling hills of Osage County from the 15th and 16th floors. This film-friendly location can be seen in Terrence Malick’s “To the Wonder” and has provided accommodations for many of the film and television productions that have based in Bartlesville and the surrounding area.
