Threatt Filling Station

Threatt Family Land & Filling Station

The Threatt Filling Station sits on about 160 acres in Luther, Oklahoma. It is a part of Oklahoma history, as well as national history. It was the first black owned gas station on Route 66 and was known as one of the only safe places for African Americans traveling  across country by way of this historical road.  The Threatt Filling Station was just recognized in 2018 by Air BnB magazine as a property that should have been listed in The Green Book. The Green Book was a tourist guide to help African American travelers seeking safe locations while traveling during the Jim Crow era.  The Threatt Filling Station is listed on the National Register of Historic Landmarks ( Google Threatt Filling Station ). This property has remained in the Threatt family for over 100 years.  Help us restore our family legacy! Donate today!
