Tulsa Landmarks and Monuments

(Tulsa, Oklahoma - OK, USA)

Being one of the oldest settlements in the country, Tusla has no shortage of historic landmarks and monuments to check out. The city of Tulsa is well-known for its Art Deco buildings, largely the result of the oil boom during the early 1900s, a prosperous time that saw the construction of numerous fine public buildings and private mansions that can still be seen today.

Befitting its prominence in the Bible belt, there are many fine old churches, while the famous Route 66 also passes through the city.
