Completed in 1931, the Broadway Tower was built by McMillen & Shelton Construction Co. from a design by George E.V. Blumenauer, of Enid, and Layton, Hicks and Forsythe, of Oklahoma City. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1985. The Broadway Tower provides the best example of Art Deco architecture as applied to tall commercial buildings still intact in Enid and is the only one remaining which has not been significantly altered. The Broadway Tower served as the Garfield County Courthouse from 1932 to 1936 as the result of a fire which totally destroyed the Courthouse. (NRHP Nomination, 1985).
