From territorial days until the 1920s, Brady Heights was an important part of the then fashionable north side of Tulsa. Young professional businessmen and oil men, like G. Y. Vandever, I. S. Mincks and “Diamond Joe” Wilson, owned homes there. The area derives its name from Tate Brady and from the addition which bears his name.
Many architectural styles have influenced the design of Brady Heights. Architects and builders used elements of Queen Anne, Prairie School, Victorian, Georgian Revival and Bungalow styles. Wood and brick are the most common exterior materials. The houses of Brady Heights are on a larger scale and of a more sophisticated design than those of adjacent neighborhoods. Bay windows with leaded glass, servants’ quarters, and broad porches suggest the elegance of earlier days.
The Brady Heights Historic District was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on June 27, 1980 — Tulsa’s first district to be listed in the Register. It was listed under National Register Criteria C, and its NRIS number is 80003302.Subdivisions
