Celebrating Ponca City’s history

Ponca City Now - September 15, 2015 9:09 am

Mayor Homer Nicholson issued a proclamation at Monday night’s City Commission meeting recognizing September as Local History Month and celebrating Ponca City’s birthday on Sept. 21.

Members of the city’s Historic Preservation Advisory Panel presented a slide show on Ponca City’s efforts to preserve its history and about the properties that have been placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Framed certificates were presented to Pioneer Bible Church and St. John’s Baptist Church as two sites that were added to the National Register in 2015.

The panel is working on adding the Lake Ponca Duck Pond to the National Register this year and on creating another city historic zoning district on East Overbrook.
