Geocache Description:

This cache is to help with your Tulsa history trivia. This is Tulsa’s oldest house still in existence.

Sylvester was a farmer, a carpenter and a Methodist minister in Iowa, Kansas and Missouri before he came to Indian Territory (now known as Oklahoma).

Sylvester acquired a house and lot in Tulsa, Creek Nation, for $15.00, in a deed signed by Pleasant Porter, Principal Chief of the Creek Nation, in 1900. Sylvester had previously built a three-room home of native oak at 412 North Cheyenne Avenue, in 1887, on this lot. This house is presumed to be Tulsa's oldest house still in existence. It was moved to Pioneer Corner in Owen Park in 1976. The house was renovated, but vandals have since damaged the historic structure

I hope you enjoy the cache and maybe it will stir your curiosity about Tulsa history.

The password is Sylvester’s last name in lower case.
