Where to Eat:
"Downtown Tulsa is home to some great local
restaurants! El Guapo's in the heart of Tulsa's
Blue Dome District at the corner of 1st and
Elgin. In addition to great Mexican food it
features Tulsa's only downtown roof top cantina
with gorgeous views of the city. Another great
choice in the Blue Dome District is Yokozuna
Sushi. They live up to their slogan “Sushi is Art”
and feature a number of excellent Asian specialties.
Finally, another great spot I like to recommend
is Tavolo Italian restaurant. It has a classic Italian
setting and offers affordable daily lunch specials."
Must See:
"Tulsa attractions have something for everyone!
I like to recommend The Philbrook Museum,
which is located 10 minutes from downtown, for an
exceptional taste of Tulsa culture. The Gilcrease
Museum is an incredible place to experience
Native American and Western Oklahoma history.
Families will enjoy the Oklahoma Aquarium,
Zoo and Planetarium.”
“When guests are looking for unique shopping I
always suggest Lyon’s Indian Store – just a short
walk from the hotel. Their store is packed with
quality souvenirs and gifts. Another of my
favorites is Tulsa Antiques and Vintage Jewelry,
located at 41st and Yale. I could spend hours
browsing through their store!”

Proud History. Bright Future.
What was to ultimately
become Tulsa was part of
Indian Territory, which was
created as part of the relocation
of the Five Civilized Tribes–
the Choctaw, Cherokee,
Muscogee(Creek), Chickasaw,
and Seminole peoples. These
Native American tribes
moved into the region after
the passage of the Indian
Removal Act of 1830, when
they were forced to surrender
their lands east of the
Mississippi River to the federal
government in exchange for
land in Indian Territory.
The city now known as Tulsa
was first settled by the
Lochapoka (Turtle Clan)
Muscogee (Creek) between
1828 and 1836. Driven from
their native Alabama, the
Lochapokas established their
new settlement "Tulasi,"
meaning "old town" in their
native language.
In 1882, the Atlantic and
Pacific Railroad completed
the extension of its line to
Tulsa from the town of Vinita
to serve the cattle business,
the city's first industry.
Brothers James and Harry
Hall, who had operated the
railway's company store in
Vinita chose the point at
which the railroad stopped.
James, who would later be
referred to as the 'Father of
Tulsa,' marked off Tulsa's first
streets, built its first permanent
store, organized its first church,
school, and government.
Tulsa changed from a small
frontier town to a boomtown
with the discovery of oil in
1901 at Red Fork, on the
opposite side of the Arkansas
investors flooded into the city
and the town began to take
shape. Neighborhoods were
established in Tulsa on the
opposite side of the Arkansas
River from the drilling sites,
and began to spread out from
downtown Tulsa.
In 1904, Tulsans constructed
a bridge across the river,
allowing oil field workers,
supplies, food and equipment
to cross the river, reaffirming
Tulsa's position as the center
of the oil field. Within a year
the Glenn Pool oil field was
discovered. This strike created
such a large supply of crude
oil that it forced Tulsans to
develop storage tanks for the
excess oil and gas and, later,
pipelines. It also laid the
foundation for Tulsa to
become a leader in many
businesses related to oil and
gas. Many early oil companies
chose Tulsa for their home
High rise buildings began to
appear downtown during this
decade. The16-story Cosden
Building was constructed in
1918, and is considered the
first skyscraper in Tulsa. It
was later acquired by Mid
Continent Oil Company, who
built an adjacent tower
integrated with the older
structure, now called the
Mid-Continent Tower.
The second surge of oil
discoveries occurred between
1915 and 1930, and firmly
established Tulsa as the "Oil
Capital of the World".
Wealthy oilmen such as Waite
Phillips, William G. Skelly
and J. Paul Getty built stately
mansions and beautiful modern
headquarters. The prevalence
of the Art Deco style of
architecture during this period
resulted in a treasure trove of
beautiful structures. In 1932,
Waite Phillips donated his
exquisite Italianate mansion
"Philbrook" to the city of
Tulsa for use as an art museum
Another community that
flourished in Tulsa during the
Greenwood. It was the largest
and wealthiest of Oklahoma's
African American communities
and was known nationally as
"Black Wall Street". The
neighborhood was a hotbed of
Tulsa KEY • November 2014
jazz and blues in the 1920s.
The scene in Greenwood was
so hot that story has it that in
1927 while on tour, Count
Basie heard a dance band in a
club in Greenwood and
decided to focus on jazz.
Did You Know?
Tulsa was literally the "Oil
Capital of the World" from
the early 1920s until World
War II. By the time the
companies moved operations
closer to offshore production,
Tulsa had begun to develop
the aircraft and aerospace
industry, which is now the
region's largest industry.
The Tulsa Race Riot of
1921 was one of the nation's
worst acts of racial violence
and large-scale civil disorder.
On May 31, during 16 hours
of rioting, 39 people were
killed, over 800 people
injured, an estimated 10,000
were left homeless, 35 city
blocks with more than 1,200
residences were destroyed by
fire, and $1.8 million (nearly
$17 million after adjustment
for inflation) in property
damage. Confined mainly to
the segregated Greenwood
neighborhood of Tulsa, the
riot was responsible for
wiping out nearly all of the
prosperity and success that
Black Wall Street had
achieved to that time,
although the neighborhood
had rebuilt within a few years
and flourished until the 1960s.
For the majority of Tulsans,
the mid 20th Century proved
a time of continuing prosperity.

early oil industry also helped
Tulsa become a leader in the
aviation industry. During
WWII, the Spartan School of
Aeronautics was a training
site for hundreds of allied
pilots and in 1942, Douglas
Aircraft built its mile-long
Air Force Plant No. 3 to
build bombers. Following the
war, Tulsa became an important
maintenance center for
American Airlines and many
aviation related businesses
developed alongside.
Tulsa was the first major
Oklahoma city to begin an
urban renewal program. One
of the first major urban
renewal projects was the
Williams Center. The most
notable feature of this project
is the BOK Tower (originally
Center). This required the
clearing of several blocks in
downtown Tulsa near the
Frisco railroad tracks as a
result many of the oldest
buildings in the city were
razed. The only pre-1910
building remaining in
downtown Tulsa is the Pierce
Block at Third and Detroit.
The "Oil Bust" of 1982
allowed the title of "Oil
Capital of the World" to be
relinquished to Houston. City
leaders worked to diversify
the city away from a largely
petroleum-based economy to
Internet and telecommunications
firms and enhancing the
already important aviation
petroleum is still an important
player, an abundant supply of
natural gas also helped with
Today, Tulsa boasts an
eclectic mix known nowhere else.
One of big city extravagance
and small town charm.
Cosmopolitan arts like the
Tulsa Ballet, Tulsa Opera,
Tulsa Performing Arts Center
Orchestra collide with the
classic cowboy charisma
found in the infamous Cain’s
Ballroom, the historical
Gilcrease Museum, and
world-renowned horse shows
like the Palomino World
Championships and the
Breeder’s Invitational.
Unexpected treasures are
found at every corner. Stateof-the-art facilities like the
BOK Center and ONEOK
Field stand side-by-side with
the rejuvenated high-rise
buildings like the Mayo
Hotel. Built during the height
of Tulsa’s oil boom era, the
Mayo Hotel is one of many
Art Deco-style architectural
gems that still stand in Tulsa
today, offering a glimpse of
Tulsa’s rich oil heritage.
Utica Square; festivals like
Mayfest and Oktoberfest; fine

back to your old geography
lessons. Years ago, city
planners laid out the streets

streets west of Main are
named, alphabetically, for
cities west of the Mississippi

isitors to Tulsa have the opportunity to view
“Alexandre Hogue: An American Visionary –
Paintings and Works on Paper” at the Gilcrease
Museum. Organized by the Rockwell Museum of
Western Art, Corning, New York., and co-curated by
Susie Kalil and James Peck, the Hogue show is on
exhibit through November 30.
Known primarily for his “Dust Bowl” or “Erosion
Series” of works, the exhibit features more than 50
exceptional works by Hogue, considered one of the
titans of the art world. It features paintings and works
on paper from major museum collections across the
country and private collections in Texas and
Oklahoma. A number of works from Hogue’s daughter
Olivia Hogue Mariñ o are included in the exhibition.
The exhibition is accompanied by Kalil’s 2010 monograph,
“Alexandre Hogue: An American Visionary,” which
will be available for purchase in the Museum Store.
In a career that spanned more than 75 years, Hogue
created a substantial body of work that changed
considerably as it developed through the decades. All
the while, he stuck by his innermost belief: a sense of
life within the earth that endures despite man’s ravages.
He created a varied body of work in which the
relationship between human and nature is a central,
unifying concern. Founded on a deep accord with
nature, his work expresses the beauty and fragility of
this relationship. Each series – from the hauntingly
beautiful Taos landscapes and prophetic canvases of a
dust-covered Southwest to his depictions of the fierce
geological phenomena of the Big Bend – serves as a
homage to nature.
Gilcrease Museum was founded in 1949 as a private
museum by Tulsa oilman Thomas Gilcrease (18901962), who amassed the nation's most comprehensive
collection of art of the American West, as well as major
collections of historical documents and artifacts.
Beyond the extensive Gilcrease collections and
exhibits are its beautiful facilities and gardens. Themed
gardens have been developed on 23 of the museum’s
460 acres.

Located just north of downtown, amidst art galleries,
shops, restaurants and
nightclubs, you’ll find two
venues, the Brady Theater
and Cain’s Ballroom, in the
Brady Arts District. The
between 1912 and 1914,
was originally designed to
serve as the city’s
Municipal Auditorium and
was listed on the National
Register of Historic Places
in 1979. Supplanted as the
City Auditorium in 1979
by construction of the
Performing Arts Center in
downtown, “the Old Lady
on Brady” continues to be
used today for a wide variety
of concerts and theatrical
Cain’s Ballroom, an historic
venue called the birthplace
of Western Swing and the
Carnegie Hall of Western
Music, is also listed on the
National Register of
Historic Places. So much
talent has passed through
its doors, from Bob Wills
and the Texas Playboys to
Hank Williams and Patsy
Cline. Later, names such
as Van Halen, The Police
and INXS joined the
ranks. The grand ballroom
continues to attract concertgoers as diverse as the
music that draws them here.
There’s plenty happening
in the historical district
known for its funky vibe,
with plans to create an
entire, walkable arts district
in a span of only a few
blocks. A number of the
older buildings are in the
process of renovation, like
the Mathews Warehouse,
with neighboring buildings
the Arts
Humanities Council of
Tulsa Hardesty Arts
Center expanding the
district’s desirability.
These exciting new locations
have plans to house art
galleries, including satellite
The Blue Dome District is
another center for downtown
nightlife. Located on the
north east side of downtown, the Blue Dome was
once a 1920’s gas station
attracting Route 66 travelers with its Art Deco blue
dome, this gem is now the
place to enjoy pubs,
restaurants, a vintage
bowling alley or regional
bands. Several festivals
take place here including
the Blue Dome Arts
Festival, FreeTulsa Music
Festival and St. Patrick’s
Day Festival.
Once called “Black Wall
Street,” Tulsa’s historic
Greenwood District boasts
locations of the Philbrook

Originally, the state of
Oklahoma was set aside for
the exclusive use of the
Indians and was called
Indian Territory . However,
in 1889, the land was
opened to settlers in what
became known as the
"Oklahoma Land Rush." On
the first opening day on
April 22, 1889, 50,000 people
swarmed into the area.
Those who tried to beat
the noon starting gun
were called Sooners.
Hence the state's nickname.

Tulsa KEY • November 2014
isitors to Tulsa can’t miss a stop at the historic Cain’s
Ballroom. Built in 1924 by Tulsa entrepreneur Tate
Brady, The Cain’s Ballroom has gone from a garage, a
dime-a-dance joint and a dancing academy until it
became what is known by artists and patrons alike as one
of the top performance venues in the world today.
The highlight of the ballroom is a historic maple, spring
loaded dance floor designed in a “log cabin” or concentric
square pattern. The walls are decorated with oversized photographs of various musicians who played Cain’s, including
Bob Wills, Johnnie Lee Wills, Ernest Tubb, Hank Williams,
Tex Ritter, Kay Starr and Tennessee Ernie Ford.
Bob Wills was born into a family of fiddlers where he
learned to play the fiddle and mandolin. As a young man,
Wills performed at house dances, medicine shows and on
the radio. On New Year’s Night 1935, he made his debut
at Cain’s and the venue soon became known as “The
Home of Bob Wills.”
As The Home of Bob Wills and The Texas Playboys from
1935 to 1942, the ballroom was especially significant for
popularizing a new sound of western music called western
swing, a form of country and western that combined jazz,
hillbilly, boogie, blues, big band swing, rhumba, mariachi
and jitterbug music. Weekly dances, a midnight radio
show and a daily noon-hour program were played by Bob
Wills during what are remembered as his “glory years.”
Bob Wills is remembered as “The King of Western
Swing.” He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of
Fame in 1978, into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in
1999 and received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement
Award in 2007 for his significant contributions to
American music from the 1930s through the 1960s.
During his career, Wills wrote and recorded at least 470
songs, including “Take Me Back to Tulsa” and “San
Antonio Rose,” and he influenced such artists as Willie
Nelson, Merle Haggard and Asleep at the Wheel.
Even if you miss a concert night – you can still see the
ballroom and enjoy Oklahoma Joe's - located in Bob's,
the side stage of Cain's Ballroom. The restaurant serves
some of the best BBQ this side of Memphis and is open
11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday-Friday and for many of the
live-music events at Cain's. Located at 423 N Main Street
