Bartlesville Legends - Sep 22

$129.00

There's a reason that Bartlesville is called the City of Legends. It is the long-time home of Phillips Petroleum Company founded by legendary Frank Phillips in 1905 when the area was still Indian territory.  The company became Conoco Phillips, and later split with both Conoco and Phillips Petroleum retaining operations, though no longer their headquarters, within the city.  

On this tour our group will first visit the home of Frank Phillips, almost entirely unchanged since the oilman lived here.  Our tour will include all 3 floors of the home led by a trained docent who will share stories about the Phillips family, the home's architecture, the history of Bartlesville and more.

We will have a tour of the Price Tower, designed by legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright.  Wright nicknamed the Price Tower:  "The tree that escaped the crowded forest" because it was far from the crowded skyscrapers of Manhattan and the east coast.  It is the only skyscraper Wright ever built.  Our tour includes the Arts Center and the iconic building itself with its unique architecture.

PRICE TOWER IS NOT HANDICAP ACCESSIBLE.  THERE IS NO SEATING ON THE TOUR, AND ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST BE ABLE TO STAND OR WALK FOR THE ONE HOUR TOUR DURATION.

In the afternoon we will drive about 12 miles southwest of Bartlesville through the Osage Hills to the 3700 acre Woolaroc Wildlife Preserve, home to more than 30 species of native and exotic animals including bison, elk, and longhorn cattle.  Originally established in 1925 as the ranch and retreat of Frank Phillips, Woolaroc is today a world renowned destination for nature enthusiasts.  We will visit the Woolaroc museum which includes a collection of Western art and artifacts, American Indian material, and one of the largest collections of Colt firearms in the world.
