Tulsa

Map on/off

I stayed for a few days in Tulsa visiting a friend going to law school at the university. Though it's a rather small city overall, Tulsa does have several interesting aspects to its history: from Native American roots to cowboy range to oil boom town of the 1920s. It's the latter that gives the downtown its very characteritic art deco style. (2005)

A view of the downtown Tulsa skyline. A premiere example of the art deco style that is a hallmark of the city, Boston Avenue Methodist Church is a recognizable landmark of Tulsa. Tulsa began here at the Creek Council Oak Tree when a group of forcibly relocated Native Americans met to form a new community. Tulsa has several museums and gardens. The Gilcrease Museum houses both Native American art as well as gardens from a variety of periods such as the Victorian garden shown here.
