Fleeger Residence, 1937

2424 East 29th Street

This residence was designed by Frederick V. Kershner. As the first monolithic concrete house in Tulsa, this Streamline style residence has walls of reinforced poured concrete, 12-14 inches thick, which were engineered by the Portland Cement Company. The exterior is striated with narrow horizontal bands and the wings are composed of intersecting rectangular blocks. The house is situated on an uneven lot, massed to the highest point above the entry, with banded, flat roof levels stepped down like a series of stairs to the garage. The front location of the garage was very unusual for its time.

  1. Bonjour.

    Je crois, Bill, qu'il va falloir aller moins vite si nous voulons bien comprendre toute l'architecture et les sites intéressants de Tulsa...
    J'ai beaucoup aimé la vieille maison de Tulsa et l'histoire du pasteur tué pour avoir été confondu avec un trafiquant de whisky !
    Pour le reste, c'est très, très moderne !
