Capital Campaign Donors

Until 1997, THS was located in a variety of loaned or rental facilities. In that year, the board of directors acquired  the  historically significant Travis Mansion. Their intent was to renovate and expand the existing structure to provide a facility in which to collect, preserve, and present Tulsa’s history. Situated on 3.2 acres, the Travis Mansion’s lawn is adjacent to the grounds of the Tulsa Garden Center, the Arboretum, the Tulsa Rose Garden, the Linnaeus Garden and Woodward Park.

The following generous donors to the THS capital campaign made possible the purchase, renovation and expansion of the Travis Mansion.  The THS board of directors and the community are grateful for the commitment of these donors to the preservation of Tulsa’s history for future generations.
