Yukon Miller’s..

I am coming to you with a hopeful heart. As a fellow member of our wonderful community, I, like many of you, have concerns for the future plans of our very own Main Street, known as the famous, historic Rout 66. 

These plans include the removal of our very memorable Silos that reside at 220 W. Main, Yukon, OK. In their place, this project includes a five story parking garage, a new apartment complex, another hotel, & a technology center. 

These Mils date back all the way to the 1900s. 
The Mils are what make us the Yukon Miller’s. 
Bringing a project like this to life on the Mother Road will inevitably push out our well established small business owners & even some Yukon residents.. On the behalf of those who cringe at the idea of “big city accommodations” taking over our town, I strongly urge everyone to consider what this will bring to our backyards. 

Yukon is my home. I grew up in the area, my mother grew up here, & 3 generations back from her.. My mother’s father, my grandfather, worked the Mil. This is true for many of you as well. When Oklahomans from all over the state think of Yukon, they picture the famous “Yukon’s Best Flour” sign lighting the way through our beloved town. This is what puts us on the map. This is our history. For many generations, we have admired our Silos from near & far all while tourist from all over come through with plans to take pictures of/with these incredible monuments. Tearing down our Silos, or even covering them up by any means would be crushing for so many. Throughout our country, we are sadly witnessing more & more of our history being erased & ultimately forgotten. Please ask yourself, is this what we want for The Main Street of America? 

Hear me when I say that I am not against the progression of our community. But I am against the clear efforts that have been made to keep these plans from the people of our community. I am against being blindsided, and I will never support a project that inconveniences our own in order to fill someone else’s wallet. 

There are many ideas being thrown around for future plans that would benefit our locals & current residents while also bringing our monuments back to life. But first, we have to band together & make our voices heard. We may not be as small of a town as we once were, but our charm & our “small town fill” are still very much alive. It is up to us to keep it that way. This is OUR Yukon. 

Save our Silos!
