From the ornate and decadent to the streamline and modern– our city boasts some of the finest examples of many styles. Some structures are well preserved jewels, some are in transition and others were not so fortunate. TFA believes preserving the past starts with teaching people about the unique history of Tulsa’s built environment.

“This is a great way to provide a standing date and time for the people of Tulsa who are interested in learning more about the architecture of downtown,” says Shane Hood, TFA Trustee. “You can learn more about our built environment, and at the same time support an organization whose mission includes the adaptive reuse and preservation of many of these same buildings.”

Cost to join the tour is only $10 per person (kids under 12 free) and the proceeds benefit the Tulsa Foundation for Architecture. For more information contact or visit our events calendar for upcoming dates. Special tours are also available to groups by appointment, please contact
