Overview

Heritage Hills, Oklahoma's first historic district was designated in 1966. Over the past 50 years, the neighborhood has become home to some of the city's highest real estate values, and has a legacy of strong neighborhood participation and activism. With its concentration of grand, early 20th Century architecture, the area is a tourist destination unto itself, attracting thousands of  visitors to its tree-lined streets and annual home tours. Three neighborhood activists tell the story, describing the effectiveness of historic preservation as a tool and outlining  the district's strategy to remain healthy in the future.
