These neighbourhoods on the National Register of Historic Properties are ideal for jogging because they are close to the State Capitol and just north of Midtown. Some of Oklahoma City’s most charming homes can be found on the lovely streets covered by big trees, particularly the Overholser Mansion and the Hales Mansion on North Hudson Avenue. A DIY path is easy and clear-cut due to the grid-like city arrangement. A sample 2.5-mile route that starts and ends at the commercial district of NW 23rd Street, where there is plenty of parking and post-run snacks, is shown on our map.
In Oklahoma City’s centre is the historic district known as Heritage Hills. It is renowned for having some of the largest historic mansions and homes in the city as well as hosting the yearly Heritage Hills Historic Homes and Gardens Tour. The Hales Mansion and Henry Overholser’s Overholser Mansion are also located in the region. Mesta Park, Heritage Hills East, and Midtown all abut Heritage Hills to the west and north, respectively.
The National Register of Historic Places recognizes Mesta Park, a residential community in Oklahoma City, as a historic district. NW 16th and 23rd St., as well as Western and Walker Avenues, roughly define the listing’s boundaries. It had 165 acres, 522 contributing structures, and one contributing site when it was listed on the National Register in 1983.
From 1906 through 1930, the land was gradually developed; by 1915, roughly half of it had been finished.
