Synopsis: With his trained architect's eye, John Walton sees a new spirit arising from the old in the city he loves so well. From the vantage point of the twenty-first century, Walton revisits the houses and stories of their owners who built homes as part of what Walton calls "Tulsa Beautiful."
Richly illustrated with more than 300 photographs from the past and present, these pages picture houses that have vanished under the wrecker's ball, to be replaced by new homes. It also shows many that have been restored, the owners creating new beauty from old. Typical of these transformations are the "oil baron mansions" in the Osage Hills. Situated on the vast land holdings acquired through a combination of Osage Indian tribal allotments and pioneer opportunity in the oil-rich Tulsa town of the 1920s is a compound of family-built houses. One of the Osage Hills mansions was almost destroyed by a recent fire. But like the phoenix, the bird of fable arising from fire and ashes into a new era, the home is now in the process of diligent and careful restoration. Within these pages are scores of such tales -- of loss and reclamation, happenstance and grace -- all intertwined with the extraordinary domestic architecture of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
