PHOTO PROVIDED/CAROLYN ESTES Landscape changes took place on 169 in Oologah late last week as the demolition started on the old two-story brown house and garage on the corner of Highway 169 and Alta. They were knocked down and hauled away. Also leaving the property was the fence and all but one large tree. The property had recently been sold and since the home was inhabitable the property was cleared. It will be placed for sale as a great commercial location. Several people tried to find out when the house was built but the best they could come up with was sometime before 1949. Peggy Brunson moved to Oologah in 1949 and she believes the house was there at that time. She remembers being invite in to play with a friend and watching a small black and white TV.
