Tulsa’s historic buildings and sites are what make Tulsa, Tulsa. Our unique history is what gives Tulsa its flavor, and lets you know that you’re not just anywhere. Tulsa’s lovely historic neighborhoods, downtown skyscrapers, and industrial buildings are important aesthetic and economic assets, but they also provide a tangible link between the past and the present.
How far we’ve come! Tulsa is a city blessed with rich history, spanning centuries of Native American culture and over a hundred years of urbanization. From the first ranchers to the oil boom; from our gorgeous collection of Art Deco gems to the famous Futurist architecture at Oral Roberts University; from the first finely-detailed Craftsman bungalow to the last mid-century Atomic Ranch — Tulsa history is all around us, and easy to enjoy.
