Tulsa Apartment Building Added to National Historic Places Register

Tulsa Preservation Commission

A Tulsa apartment building just outside of downtown is among four new properties in Oklahoma added to the National Register of Historic Places.

Elizabeth Manor was designed by architect Arthur Atkinson and built in 1925. It's located at 1820 S Boulder Ave.

The Tulsa Preservation Commission describes the building's style as Late Gothic Revival and Collegiate Gothic. It originally contained six units. It's been converted into office space.

The other listings are the C. A. Comer House associated with architect Bruce Goff in Dewey; the Hays-Kennedy/Rivoli Theater in downtown Blackwell and the Czech Hall of Oklahoma City, Lodge Laska.

Listing on the National Register is a designation that provides recognition, limited protection and, in some cases, financial incentives for these properties.

The preservation office identifies, evaluates and nominates properties for the special designation.
