Housed in a 1919 Italianate-Revival mansion, the building is another oil legacy. Samuel Travis and his brother David built side-by-side homes. Samuel’s home now highlights history.
The closest thing to a permanent exhibit is a display of photographs about the home. Other exhibits come and go; so you may see an exhibit on the Tulsa Race Riot of 1921, a display of Frankoma pottery or an array of items from the Tulsa in the 50s.
Be sure and visit the Vintage Garden in front of the building. You’ll find architectural artifacts scattered here plus a beautiful group of five sculptures, “The Five Moons,” saluting Oklahoma’s five Native American prima ballerinas.
