Art Deco Buildings in Tulsa
1551 South Yorktown Place (map it)
This house was designed by Joseph R. Koberling, Jr. for J. B. McGay. McGay was an inventor who designed the parking meter, a gas calculator, petroleum gauges, and the tubeless tire. The home is an example of Streamline Art Deco with elements of the early Zigzag style. It is constructed of painted brick and features Spanish style wrought iron window balconies. Considered a maverick at the time, it was very unusual with its corner windows, front garage, and five different levels.
The McGay Residence is a contributing resource of the Gillette Historic District, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. « Back to List of Art Deco Buildings
