Just over the hill behind the home are a Victorian-style conservatory and a colorful landscaped garden with inlaid stone steps.

At the corner of 7th and Boston in downtown Tulsa sits First Presbyterian Church, widely known as the first church in town. Chartered in 1885 by a Presbyterian missionary and 15 Creek Indians, the church has occupied various buildings on this site since 1911. The structure housing the current sanctuary was built in 1925 and is reminiscent of 16th-century Gothic architecture. However, the church actually occupies a number of buildings on this corner. Call the church office for information on touring the facility. You visit this place on Sunday at 8am, 9.30am and 11am.

A recognizable landmark in downtown Tulsa, this large historic church building is a city treasure of particular interest because it sports a large green dome rather than a traditional steeple. Inside the sanctuary, there is an inner dome of stained glass, suspended underneath the outer dome by a grid of pulleys and cables. This church has a historic significance for Tulsa, having been at this location since 1920 and in existence in Tulsa since 1902. Viewing of the building can be done during business hours, but it is recommended that you call ahead.
Tulsa, located in the state of Oklahoma, is situated right on the Arkansas River at the base of the Ozark Mountains. The Tulsa Opera, Expo Square, Philbrook Museum of Art, as well as the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame are some of the major attractions that draw people to this second largest city in the state. The city is well known for being a capital in the oil industry for the majority of the 20th Century, and landmarks and holdovers from its oil heritage can still be seen all over the city.
The Center of the Universe is one of the rarest attractions in the city of Tulsa. Its strange quality lies in that it can strangely change the sound of your voice if you stand directly at the centre of its 30 inch cement circle. The speaker's voice assumes a vibrating nature that can be heard by the speaker alone. There is also no established explanation regarding what causes this unusual phenomenon. However, some theories claim that the parabolic reflectivity of the planter walls may be causing it. Despite this, the extraordinary nature of this attraction cannot be denied, thus making it a must-visit spot for those in Tulsa.
