You are invited to Tulsa Foundation for Architecture’s monthly walking tour. Mark your calendar, because TFA Second Saturday Tours feature a different historical area or topic each month. Tulsa has a rich architectural heritage and TFA is passionate about sharing our knowledge with you. Grab your coffee and join in the fun! 

June’s tour is KENDALL-WHITTIER: An American Mainstreet A bustling shopping district from the late 1920s through the 1950s was devastated by the highway project that would bisect it in 1967. But impressive investment projects have restored this once-neglected area, now home to a mix of galleries, breweries, restaurants, and non-mainstream retail.

On this tour, we’ll explore Tulsa’s first “suburban” shopping district.
