Historic Treasure: City Veterinary Hospital

The City Veterinary Hospital, 3550 S. Peoria Ave., is about as Art Deco as it gets.

Designed by Joseph R. Koberling Jr. in the Streamline Moderne style, this 1942 gem features the rounded corners, curved glass-block windows, and horizontal “speed lines” characteristic of this ultra-modern phase of the Art Deco design movement.

Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2008, the City Veterinary Hospital continues to serve Tulsa animals and their owners.

To get to the City Veterinary Hospital from The Campbell Hotel, go west on 11th Street (Historic Route 66) to Peoria Avenue, then turn left on Peoria and continue south through Brookside. The City Veterinary Hospital will be on your right, just before you reach the QuikTrip and just across the street from a Jimmy John’s sub shop.

Tulsa is home to more than 50 properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Tulsa Preservation Commission has a complete list of these architectural and historic treasures on its website. Why not check into The Campbell Hotel — listed on the National Register under its original name, the Casa Loma Hotel — and spend a weekend exploring these fascinating properties?
