Preserving Oklahoma City

Many believe Oklahoma City is not historic. George Washington never slept
here. But our city has a rich history; a city of oil barons and political activitists and pioneering pilots. There is much history, and much worth preserving.

Oklahoma City's greatest asset is its wealth of historic neighborhoods; the stately mansions of Heritage Hills, the Olmstead influenced layout of Edgemere Park, and the significance of Edwards Neighborhood, the first African-American subdivision. Preserving Oklahoma City has grown beyond the idea of little old ladies in hats. Historic preservation means business and economic development. It is a tool for the revitalization of our city.
