Holiday Hills Landing

Any Tulsan worth their Quittin’ Time knows Urbana at 61st used to be a runway.

The air field was called Tulsa Commercial. But did you know that runway is not the only remnant of this airport?

East 58th Place is built on top of the crosswind runway. The original concrete is still intact and markings are visible in certain places. Presumably the developers of the Holiday Hills subdivision didn’t feel the need to break up all that  nice concrete.

Another nifty fact: what used to be the office/restaurant is a private home today. It has a huge kitchen and two bathrooms side by side!
