Once farmland on the outskirts of Tulsa’s downtown area, Maple Ridge was to begin a voyage of her own. Maple Ridge includes many residential subdivisions – beginning with the Southside Addition, platted in 1907. The Morningside subdivision was platted in the Maple Ridge neighborhood in 1912 and known for its clapboard-style homes. As the area developed south by prosperous oil barons of the time, more stately brick and stone mansions were built, described as “spacious in dimensions and a perfect picture of restful elegance.”

Large lots and homes were governed by the state’s first subdivision regulations, and the architectural styles vary from two-story brick mansions, bungalows and even Spanish stucco. Throughout Maple Ridge, beautiful rose gardens abound, and the streets are still lined with graceful trees and lush plants.
