The area is known for two main architectural styles: Tudor Revival and Minimal Traditional style. Tudor revival homes are generally constructed of brick, have a steep pitched roof with a façade dominated by one or more cross gables. Garages are typically detached from the home and possess a similar style.

The Minimal Traditional style was built following the Tudor revival homes and were simplified by a low or intermediate pitched roof and minimal decorative detailing. Other styles present in the White City Historic District include Modern Movement, Ranch, Colonial Revival, Mission/Spanish Colonial Revival and Bungalow/Craftsman.

White City in midtown Tulsa was originally a dairy farm built by Pennsylvania native, Glenn Braden and it was so named because of the color of the buildings and silos built there. After Braden’s death, his children closed the dairy, platted the land and began selling lots. Targeted at Tulsa’s middle class, the White City addition offered modern suburban acreage.
