Tulsa, Oklahoma, the second largest city of Oklahoma and the 46th largest in the USA has been the oil capital of the world for a great part of the 20th century. This oil boom brought a lot of wealth and with that came some great architecture. The city has one of the biggest number of Art Deco structures in the country.
In the boom time, almost every oilman built a mansion in Tulsa, these days the oilmen and the oil industry has mostly moved out of Tulsa, but thanks to the Tulsa Historical Society, most of these houses are well preserved.
Most of these houses were built in early1900s.
