They are surprisingly large homes, and some are quite elaborate. Research that has been done for the city of Tulsa has found about 20 of them in the city thus far. The price of purchase at the time was usually between $1500 and $3500. Yes, that's for the entire house!! Most have been modified, either extensively or slightly in the intervening years. Today, we set off to find and admire about 10 of them. Here are a few. . .
. . . and this monument to writer Washington Irving which was erected by one of Tulsa's early private citizens.
If you want more information about kit houses, let me know. I can help you with your research, and the Tulsa Historical Society has lots of information, too.
