DeVitt House – Tulsa

This unusual house is constructed on a generally rectangular plan and sports a veneer of yellow brick and a gable roof clad in red Mission tile. Prominent features of the front elevation include a fanciful Missionesque parapet with cast-stone coping over an equally flamboyant Missionesque cast-stone lintel. The Tulsa Way site was purchased in 1928 by Philip M. Devitt, who was active in real estate and president of Fort Worth Auto Supply Co.; he and his wife, Oma, resided here until 1944. The house appears intact.
