About this Exploration:

Historical Highway Marker

You'll have to look closely to see this historical highway directional arrow on the south side of Center Street Apparel 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 1900's 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

As you search out the arrow, stop in at Center Street Apparel for a t-shirt or sweet treat - bulk chocolates and candy available.
