Abandoned Buildings – The Catron Building

Catron Building - West of Downtown

On a lunchtime geocaching expedition to a not great area of Tulsa just to the west of downtown Tulsa on West Admiral I found this gem of a building. It looks abandoned but there is a shiny mail slot in the door to the right and a city garbage container to the left. This looks like it used to be stores below and apartments or offices above. I”m trying to figure out what it used to be.  I love mysteries like this.

    I believe you are correct about the original use of this structure. The door in the center would typically lead to the vestibule and stairs to the apartments upstairs. There were probably either two or four units on the second floor. It would take some research of city records to find the building permits and original owners of the structure, but Catron is certainly the first clue to solving the mystery. I do enjoy your lunch time adventures.
