This is Cheyenne Avenue just South of 15th Street. This lovely old residential area is almost in the middle of downtown Tulsa. It is typical of neighborhoods built prior to 1920 with solid homes on tree lined streets.
Big front porches, flags, and sidewalks are of an older time when prople walked around after dinner and visited with their neighbors.
This photo was taken in 1913. The brick pillars and wrought iron arch were built in 1909.
The pillars are still standing but the arch is gone. Most of the old houses are still here. Because it is so close to the center of Tulsa it is a very desirable place to live if you work downtown. We think we are close to down town but we are 3 miles south of here. We were out in the country when these houses were built. Now we are "mid-town".
