With the exception of the smart red awnings, the weathered bricks, and a bit of shrubbery, the old Colonial building is remarkably unchanged in this September 2009 photograph. The handsome design has withstood the test of time.


  1. One of the coolest places in Tulsa.

  2. It was the Colonial Inn from 1927 to 1957

  3. I always thought it would be cool to rent an apartment there. I visited the Peace of Mind book store located on the corner of that building. I never realized that building was so old. Fifteenth street has really changed in the last 13 years.
