Who We Are

Calle Dos Cinco in Historic Capitol Hill, is a nonprofit organization made up of property owners, commercial tenants, and community partners. Together, we work to improve the Capitol Hill quality of life and promote its economic and cultural vitality. Governed by a diverse board of directors and in partnership with Oklahoma City, we pride ourselves on our innovative and responsible stewardship of Historic Capitol Hill.

History

Historic Capitol Hill is located just south of Downtown OKC and borders the Oklahoma River. Incorporated as a City in 1904, it was once slated to be the Capital of Oklahoma. Capitol Hill maintained sovereignty until 1911 when it was finally annexed to Oklahoma City with a dowry of $12,000.

Commerce Avenue was born from the entrepreneurial spirit of Oklahomans, establishing the Capitol Hill Commercial District.   Today, newly branded, Calle Dos Cinco continues to promote that same family focused and entrepreneurial spirit as it is now home to a growing number of multicultural shops,  restaurants and services.
