harweldon mansion. Originally a private home and listed on the national register of historic places, harwelden mansion reflects the elegance of the early 1920s with its unique architecture, majestic style, and gorgeous landscape. For decades, tulsans and guests have selected harwelden mansion to host their special events.
The Arts and Humanities Council of Tulsa offers Harwelden for any public school in the Tulsa area. Teachers attend a summer institute and have artists come to their school two to three times a year. The performances are always outstanding and really impact the children. Most of the children served are economically disadvantaged and might not ever have opportunity to view dances, plays, and musical performances. Every person our school has had contact with has been great and they all have a true love and passion for children and what they do!
