TULSA, okla. – The former Tulsa Boys Home in Midtown Tulsa is now on the National Register of Historic Places.
The house near 8th and Quincy was founded almost a hundred years ago in 1927. Homeless and troubled boys lived here for 50 years before the group moved to Sand Springs.
The site was later converted to the Laura Dester site but has been empty for years.
If the area is on the National Register of Historic Places, the area is now eligible for a historical tax credit.
Method Group, a local architecture firm, plans to convert the surrounding vacant buildings into a mix of retail office and apartment space.
There is no schedule of when work will start at this point.
