TFA DISTINCTIVE DWELLINGS: A Carpenter’s Lortondale Dream Home

 $10 | $7.50 | Event starts at 1:00 PM | Sunday, March 19th, 2023

Tulsa boasts a wide variety of residential architecture from the late 1800s through today. From midcentury modern, craftsman bungalows and colonial revival to contemporary mansions, there is an abundance of interesting homes throughout the city. The goal of TFA’s newest residential-focused program, Distinctive Dwellings, is to give those who love architecture an opportunity to see behind the doors of Tulsa’s most distinctive residences through self-guided exploration.

This one is for the midcentury lovers! This incredible Lortondale property was built in 1956. Come and see how a local carpenter has made this property his own by incorporating custom woodwork and good design!
