Montie Box Honored with 'The Box District'


At their December 19th regular meeting, the Sand Springs City Council declared the downtown area of Sand Springs “The Box District” in honor of Montie R. Box. 


Montie R. Box, otherwise known as ‘Mr. Sand Springs’, has been a part of the Sand Springs community for more than 90 years. He has served Sand Springs in countless ways, along with serving our country through the U.S. Naval Reserve and U.S. Army during the Korean Conflict. Box is known for working with numerous community organizations and groups like Sand Springs Rotary, Sand Springs American Legion, United Methodist Church, Sand Springs Chamber of Commerce, and many more. Along with promoting Sand Springs regionally through Tulsa County Fair Trust Authority, Tulsa Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, etc., Box has continuously shown his genuine commitment and support to Sand Springs.


The area approved in the proclamation to be regarded as The Box District is “the North side of the HWY 64/412 from the west curb line of Garfield Avenue to the east curb line of Lincoln Avenue, extending North to the adjacent properties north of Broadway between Garfield Avenue and Lincoln Avenue.” The City will be working on branding efforts in the near future.
