Osage Nation Wakon Iron Hall
The building, like Osage community centers in Pawhuska before it, is named for tribal elder Wakon Iron, who passed away in December of 1967. Wakon Iron is remembered by all who speak of him as a gentle, thoughtful, devout man who looked out for the well-being of his fellow Osages. This is the third consecutive Osage community center in Pawhuska to bear his name.
Wallace Design Collective provided structural and civil engineering services for new 17,000 square foot pre-engineered metal building. The new building comprises seating room for 500 people, an industrial kitchen with appliances, a family room, larger storage space, restrooms with showers, laundry room with washer and dryer and a larger outdoor cooking area.
