Zachary Taylor is a charming neighborhood full of minimal traditional homes with a slight tribute to the cape cod style. Sometimes these homes are characterized as a “Plain Jane”. These homes were built during and after World War II, at a time when tract housing became popular. This was due to the lack of building materials that were used for the war. Many of the homes in Zachary Taylor are around 800-900sqft. The war halted car production as well, so you saw a drastic decrease in automotive ownership until after the war when production was able to increase and automatic transmissions were introduced. Cars became a commodity for households and you will notice this influence of by seeing many of the homes that have attached garages in the neighborhood. This reflects a turning point in history in home construction in Oklahoma and across the nation.
