The Brady Mansion was home to Tulsa businessman, Tate Brady. The home still stands at 620 North Denver Avenue. Brady believed the future growth of Tulsa would be north of the railroad tracks and he asserted that belief in building his mansion, Arlington, at 620 N. Denver Ave.
Arlington reflected Brady’s deep affection for the South because it is named after the Virginia town that is the home of Gen. Robert E. Lee’s Custis Mansion. Indeed, the United Daughters of the Confederacy would meet for tea and Sons of the Old South would gather for toasts below a painting of Confederate generals in the drawing room of the Greek Revival-style mansion.
