  • About Our Archives

TFA holds a huge inventory of history on Tulsa’s built environment. Our Archives include an extensive collection of original architectural drawings of many significant Tulsa buildings and residences, with new materials donated regularly. We also house architectural periodicals (Pencil Points, Progressive Architecture, Architectural Forum, and Architectural Record) dating from 1920 to 1980, as well as newspaper clippings, a technical library, photographs, project specifications and artifacts.

Our long-term goal is to make as much of our Architectural Archives accessible online as possible.

In the meantime, if you are a researcher, have materials to donate, or would like to volunteer, please get in touch! You can email us at archives@tulsaarchitecture.org or call us at 918.583.5550.
