thank you!

Dear Harwelden Family,

These past couple of months have been a rewarding and beautiful journey!  Although being the host of the 2019 Tulsa Designer Showcase was unknown territory to us, it was an experience we’ll cherish forever. Construction and historic preservation began last summer with over 230 subcontractors and it was hard to fathom how in just less than a year, our National Landmark was coming back to life!  Before we knew it, the Harwelden Mansion was welcoming nearly 50 interior designers, ready to honor the Harwell Family legacy and show off the1923 English Tudor Mansion. The Foundation for Tulsa Schools has reported it as a huge success thanks to your support and generosity!

We are eternally grateful for the kind words, messages, memories and time that you have shared with us. Past, present and future; Harwelden desires to always being a part of your story. 

The Harwelden Mansion officially opens its doors to the public June 3rd and it will continue to be a wedding venue, event center, and a Bed & Breakfast for overnight stays and travel.  We will continue honoring the Harwell Family with our small museum and public tours for individuals and groups alike.

Stay tuned for future programming and scheduled community events throughout the year!

Gratefully yours,
The Harwelden Mansion Team
