About this Exploration:


Historical Highway Marker

You'll have to look closely to see this historical highway directional arrow on the south side of Basket & Blossoms Flower Garden on the corner of Center Avenue and Second Street in Oakley. 

The west bound side of the marker (shown here) shows the miles to Denver and the east bound side shows the miles to Kansas City.  In the early 1900s this arrow (we think) would have directed travelers back to U.S. 40 from U.S. 83 as they drove through downtown. 

The actual history of this marker and its purpose is yet unknown.  If you know of any history regarding this arrow, the shield, or the original colors, please call Oakley Tourism at 785.671.1000 or email tourism@discoveroakley.com. 

As you search out the arrow, the window displays of the flower shop will surely make you want to stop in to look for that perfect gift or treasure for yourself.
