"32. SIXTH STREET STAIRCASE, circa 1920-1927. The SIXTH STREET STAIRCASE extends from Ki-he-Kah Avenue to Grand View Avenue as does the SEVENTH STREET STAIRCASE. Of similar design, the SIXTH STREET STAIRCASE is not as elaborate and not as lengthy as its counterpart.

"A flight of cast-iron steps with pipe railing leads to a concrete plaza approximately twenty-five feet square and eight feet above the sidewalk level. Below this plaza is a sandstone-walled storage room. A second flight of cast-iron steps extends from the plaza across an alley and to a sandstone retaining wall. Two flights of concrete steps with pipe railing complete the staircase. No decorative lights were installed; however, a pair of concrete benches flank the uppermost stair landing.

"The base of the stairs centers on the front doors of the impressive CITIZENS NATIONAL BANK BUILDING (#57) while the top of the stairs connects with another grand staircase leading to the OSAGE COUNTY COURTHOUSE. Similar to the SEVENTH STREET STAIRCASE, this one connects important structures." ~ NRHP Nomination Form
