Honestly, this stop should be 4 to 5 stars. Where else can you see an elegant collection of bronzed statues dedicates to Ms. America. Thank you Mr. Gaylord.

The Miss America statues are in a nice setting on a quaint, pretty campus. We were there on a sat in July, so no students -- and very quiet.

Statues of three Miss Americas.

Just down the road from the former Townley's (now Brauma's) milk bottle and the Gold Dome is Oklahoma City University. And welcoming students and visitors to the campus, there they are: your ideal, the dreams of a million girls -- a trio of statues dedicated to the school's three Miss America winners, Jane Jayroe, Susan Powell and Shawntel Smith.

The statues sit in a fountain which was empty this day and the plaza includes what appears to be a school walk of fame, though I only saw one star (honoring opera singer Leona Mitchell) that wasn't blank.
