The Elk City Centennial Lighthouse stands 42 feet tall. The structure is made of stucco over steel, and was designed by local architect Tommy Shaw. A beacon lights up a dusk. Fundraising for the lighthouse began in 2005 as a joint project of the City of Elk City and Elk City Chamber of Commerce. More than $90,000 was raised for the project. The lighthouse was dedicated on November 15, 2007, in honor of Oklahoma's Centennial.
