The Frank Phillips Home is one of 32 sites and museums owned, staffed, and operated by the Oklahoma Historical Society. The house was opened to the public in 1973 when Elizabeth Irwin, granddaughter of Frank and Jane Phillips, presented the home and the Phillips’ personal belongings to the state of Oklahoma as an historical site.

Frank Phillips visited Bartlesville in 1903 to assess business possibilities in the surrounding oil fields. Two years later he returned with his wife Jane and young son John. A series of failures nearly caused him to abandon the business, but then a string of eighty-one straight successful oil wells insured success. By 1909 construction of the Frank Phillips Home was completed. From then until 1950 when Frank died, the home was the point from where he, his family and friends, and the community that grew up around them, played a key role in the development of the oil industry in America.

The mansion was remodeled twice. The last time it underwent extensive interior redecoration in 1930. The furniture, decorations and even personal effects are original.

Tallgrass Prairie Preserve

The Tallgrass Prairie Preserve, located in Osage County, Oklahoma near Foraker, Oklahoma, is owned and managed by The Nature Conservancy. It is protected as the largest tract of remaining tallgrass prairie in the world. The preserve contains 39,000 acres (160 km2) owned by the Conservancy and another 6,000 acres (24 km2) leased in what was the original tallgrass region of the Great Plains that stretched from Texas to Manitoba.

The preserve is located at the southern end of the Flint Hills, a rocky, rolling prairie that stretches from northern Kansas into Oklahoma. Exposed limestone formations make cultivation difficult, and thus the Flint Hills have survived much as they were when they were an Indian hunting ground for tribes such as the Wichita, Osage, and Kaw. The region is called “The Osage” by Oklahomans, referring to the name of the county and the Indian tribe to which the land belonged. Pilots call The Osage the “Black Hole” when flying over it at night because it is so lightly populated.

Pawhuska, Oklahoma, is the nearest large town. The preserve may also be entered near Foraker, Oklahoma, and Hewins, Kansas. The Tallgrass Prairie Preserve is open every day from dawn to dusk. There is no admission charge.
