Council Oak: A Photo by Gaylord Oscar Herron

BY Photography of Gaylord Oscar Herron Tour by Mason Whitehorn Powell

Pictured: The Creek Council Oak Tree during winter. Before the Creek Nation Council Oak Park was surrounded by apartments, a large house lingered in the background. The tree and grounds were nearly leveled to build a parking lot in the 1960s. To save the tree, the Creek Nation and several individuals bought the land and donated it to the City of Tulsa.
