TULSA, Okla. — A new history center is coming to Tulsa’s Greenwood District to help honor the legacy of Black Wall Street before and after the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre.

The groundbreaking ceremony happened Friday where the museum will be built at the southeast corner of Greenwood and Archer.

The Hille Foundation and 21 North Greenwood, LLC donated the land to the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commission instead of building a previously planned mixed-use building

Drove past and saw that foundation work is well underway for this, at long last.

Looking good, and really closes the gap between the newer Greenwood Ave development south of the tracks.
