Discover Downtown Gems on Tulsa Treasures Tour

This Saturday you can tour some of Tulsa's most important buildings. TulsaNow is sponsoring a walking tour of architecturally significant downtown Tulsa buildings. The free tour will allow visitors to see the ins and outs of four historic buildings. Art Deco to Mid Century Modern is on the menu!

Just one type of Zig Zag you'll see on the tour.
The event comes on the heels of a recently completed survey of Tulsa's architectural assets located within the Inner Dispersal Loop. The survey cataloged over 500 buildings and evaluated their historic and economic assets. This information is valuable to developers seeking tax credits for restoration, or submitting a structure for addition to the National Register of Historic Places.
