Sand Springs Home

The Sand Springs home was created as a home for orphans and widows by oilman Charles Page in 1908. The main building, erected in 1917, is now being prepared for demolition.


More schools

Thanks to the many folks who have emailed, written & posted comments on the site as a result of reading the Tulsa World article. Thanks also to those who have passed along suggestions of places to see. Here are a few places I've been lately:

Mingo Elementary, near the Tulsa Airport on North Sheridan, was in its own school district, then was transferred to the Tulsa Public School System, and is now owned by the Tulsa Airport Authority.

Mingo Elementary

Irving School, built in 1909, is at the corner of West Admiral and North Maybelle.

Abandoned Tulsa book signing

In conjunction with the Tulsa Foundation for Architecture, I will be signing copies of Abandoned Tulsa at the mid-town Borders (2740 E 21 Street) in Tulsa on Saturday, February 4th from 2-4 pm. Those who purchase the book at the signing and also take out a membership in the Tulsa Foundation for Architecture at that time will receive a print from the book.

Beginning February 4, the mid-town Borders will be stocking the book; other Tulsa locations where the book can be purchased will be listed on this site.

Abandoned Tulsa can also be purchased on the Furnace Press website
