This might be the most gorgeous house in Tulsa:
Located at 2216 E. 30th St., the Parriott House was completed in 1930. An example of Colonial Revival architecture, this striking mansion belonged to oilman Foster Brooks Parriott, who began his career with Standard Oil in 1898, and worked for several other oil companies before being elected chairman of the board for Sunray Oil in 1937, according to the Tulsa Preservation Commission.
Parriott’s enormous residence features a hipped roof, gabled dormers, and soaring columns that support a semicircular roof above the entrance. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.
The building is a private residence but is visible from the street; to get there from The Campbell Hotel, take 11th Street west to Lewis Avenue. Turn south on Lewis, then east on 31st Street. From 31st, turn right (north) on Zunis, then make another right onto 30th Place. The Parriott House is at the end of the street.
The Parriott House is one of more than 50 Tulsa properties that are listed on the National Register. How many have you seen?
