About Us

Despite what many Americans might perceive as an oxymoron, there actually is a Modern Oklahoma.
We are Rex and Jackie Brown from Tulsa, Oklahoma. Our aim here is to share our stories and photos from the unique places we visit in and around Oklahoma- and beyond.

In addition to traveling the country in search of Mid-Century marvels we are active in the historic preservation community. Jackie also enjoys gardening, editing my rambling prose and is quite the vegan chef. I am an avid motorcyclist and co-host the travel show Two Wheel Oklahoma.

Over time we hope to document the modern architecture we discover on our travels. Some still standing, some not so fortunate. By raising awareness of these gems from the "recent past" we hope to maintain and preserve modern architecture before it's lost forever.

We hope you enjoy it.
