Tulsa has deep roots in the oil industry, dating back to the discovery of oil in Red Fork in 1901. By 1920, Tulsa's population had grown to 72,000 and the city became known as the "Oil Capital of the World." Many of the historic buildings in downtown Tulsa were built during this time.
Join fellow interns and see the beautiful buildings our oil barons constructed in the teens and twenties, up through midcentury modern. Tulsans built with the finest materials, in the latest styles - as testaments to their success, and to let the rest of the world know that our young city had arrived!
