Okay Hotel Sparks enthusiasts, I am on the job. I do believe one my relatives, possibly my great-great grandfather - or perhaps one of his siblings - built this hotel. I live in Okmulgee and because I am so interested in learning the history of this building I will share my findings with you.
the current owener is my dad willie Huffman sr would love to find out some more history myself my father has had the building since the early 70's during his time he rented roons and had small bar.
My great grandfather was Oliver Sparks, my grandmother was his daughter Olive Grace Sparks. All I know is that my grandmother and her sisters Agnes and Mary worked there as teenagers. If you find out anymore information please let me know.
My great grandfather built this hotel...His name was George W. Sparks. My grandfather was Oliver Sparks and my Dad was John H. Sparks. Where can I look to get more info on the hotel?
