OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A former community corrections center in Oklahoma City that was once a popular Route 66 motel is being auctioned by the state.

The Oklahoma Office of Management and Enterprise Services will conduct a sealed bid auction on June 15 for the former Kate Barnard Community Corrections Center.

Before it was purchased by the Department of Corrections in June 1977 to be a men’s correctional facility, the property was the Suntide Inn that was built in the 1950s along Route 66.

The property was converted to a female correctional facility in 1992 and operated until 2012, when its inmates were relocated. The Department of Corrections declared it as surplus property in 2013.

The appraised value of the 3.52 acre site is $780,000. The appraisal represents the value of the land only.
