The 350-square foot red brick building, located on historic Route 66, was constructed in 1930. The building was originally referred to as Triangle Grocery due to its wedge shape made to fit a corner lot. When the now iconic giant milk bottle was added to the roof in 1948, it became known as Milk Bottle Grocery, a moniker that stays today.

Like many Route 66 roadside attractions, the purpose of the big bottle of milk was to pull you off the road (in this case, Classen Boulevard) and into the business. Through the years the businesses that have occupied the space have included a grocery store, a fruit market, a barbecue joint, a sandwich shop, a Vietnamese deli, a hat shop, a florist, cleaners, a realty office, and a liquor store.

The giant bottle is eight feet in diameter at its widest point and mimics the shape of a typical tapered glass milk bottle of the time. It’s been used to advertise several dairy brands throughout the years including Sterling Milk, Meadow Gold, Steffen’s, Townley’s, and, finally, Braum’s, which has graced the giant label since 1996.

You don’t have to worry about this giant milk bottle spoiling: the Oklahoma roadside attraction was added to the National Register of Historic Places on March 5, 1998.
