About Sioux Falls

Tulsa is a city on the Arkansas River, in the U.S. state of Oklahoma. It’s known for its large collection of preserved art deco architecture. Landmarks like the Philcade and Philtower buildings reflect a 20th-century construction boom fueled by the prosperous local oil industry. The Philbrook Museum of Art is housed in an Italianate villa that was once the home of a local oil magnate.

"In addition to the Gilcrease Museum and the Philbrook Museum of Art, other museums and organizations preserve the region's history and art. These include the Tulsa County Historical Society Museum, which is housed in the Travis Mansion, the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame, the Greenwood Cultural Center, the Tulsa Air and Space Museum, and the Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art. More than fifty Tulsa homes and historic districts are listed in the National Register of Historic Places. These include the Boston Avenue Methodist Church (NR 78002270), the Ambassador Hotel (NR 99001085), Brady Heights Historic District (NR 80003302), Cain's Dancing Academy (NR 03000874), the Creek Council Tree Site (NR 76001576), Gillette Historic District (NR 82003702), the Robert M. McFarlin House (NR 79002031), the Waite Phillips Mansion (NR 78002274), the William G. Skelly House (NR 78002275), and Swan Lake Historic District (NR 98000140)."
