History of Paseo Oklahoma
The first homes in Oklahoma City were constructed around the year 1893 on what is now Paseo. The area was known for many years as “Deep Greenwood”, but ended being called North Paseo, due to its proximity to nearby [[Paseo Boulevard]]. In 1928, the City of Oklahoma City annexed Deep Greenwood and changed the name of North Paseo Road to Paseo Boulevard. Many people don’t realize that deep inside the Oklahoma communities it has a rich history. The Paseo district started with some of the earliest homes built in the early 1900s. It falls within an area originally settled by Native Americans before Oklahoma became a state in 1907. Despite all this, only one building remains from those days which is the old Central High School at 120 W. Eubanks (used as a church now) which was built in 1926 but closed in 1984 and moved out of the district during renovations to another site (“references” section has picture of Old Central). The Paseo Public Library is located on North Robinson Avenue, just north of NW 30th Street. Now with three branch libraries, it first opened its doors in 1995.
