Station 13 was completed in 1933, by renowned Tulsa art deco architect, Albert Joseph Love. Love is widely known throughout the Tulsa community for his zigzag style architecture. Station 13 men worked in shifts of three, serving the people of west Tulsa, until 1964, when the station closed, and the new, larger station was built. The new Station 13 is located just around the corner at 351 S. 41st W. Ave.
Station 13 is only three miles west of downtown Tulsa, situated along the famous Sand Springs railroad known as “the line”. The Sand Springs Line ran commuter trains from downtown Tulsa to Sand Springs from 1911 until 1955. Station 13 amazingly had retained much of its original interior and exterior features, including doors, hardware, light fixtures, kitchen cabinets – as well as the original lockers with firefighters’ names still attached!
Station 13 is in the application process with the National Register of Historic Places. Station 13’s original, historical features, as well as the modern features added during the 2018 restoration, make for a beautiful, charming and historical venue.
Chad and Jackie Potter, owners of Station 13, have lived in the Tulsa area their entire lives. They are passionate about Tulsa and strive to offer a memorable entertainment venue to the citizens that live here. Chad and Jackie have incredible enthusiasm for restoring historical buildings to their original grace and character. Enjoy Station 13 and make it a party to remember!
