Who We Are


Acorn Storage Center is celebrating over a quarter century of meeting the storage needs of northeast Oklahoma and southwest Missouri residents.

Clyde Sare, a native of the Bartlesville area, opened the first Acorn Storage facility in 1977. An industry pioneer, Sare introduced the first computerized management and access control system to the national mini-storage market in 1982. The management and security systems developed in Bartlesville are now currently in use nationwide and being marketed by DCAL Computer Systems of Bartlesville.

In 1998, Acorn Properties, parent company to Acorn Storage Center and a growing development firm with mini-storage projects in several Oklahoma and Missouri locations, remodeled Bartlesville’s former “Fountain Club” — creating a new company headquarters. At the same location, the company introduced climate controlled storage to the Bartlesville market. This innovative type of secured storage is heated, cooled, and dehumidified.

Acorn’s new headquarters typifies the long term goals and the mission of Acorn Properties— a company that seeks to keep its headquarters in Bartlesville, to creatively re-use and refurbish existing building fabric and development sites wherever possible, and to maintain and develop new projects with the highest standards of both serviceability and architectural appeal.

Clyde Sare and his wife, Pat, continue to actively develop and enhance the Acorn Storage Centers using innovative ideas and designs that are recognized by national trade publications.

Acorn has a wide variety of sizes to meet customers’ storage needs. The professionally trained staff are always on hand to meet and assist our customers.
