The Tomb

August 12, 2018

The TombThe TombThe Tomb of the Resurrection is an interpretation of the tomb where Jesus was laid, made of sandstone rocks at the Holy City of the Wichitas in southwest Oklahoma. The project, in the Wichita Mountains, was the brainchild of the Rev. Anthony Mark Wallock, who created an Easter pageant in 1926 to tell the story of Jesus. In the 1930s the federal Works Progress Administration built a set for his story, including this tomb, a chapel and several other buildings on the 66-acre site. The Holy City, Wallock's vision of the Holy Land, today is open to visitors, many of whom no doubt are drawn to the neighborhood by the adjacent national Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. And the pageant? Still going, and always on Easter Sunday.
