About Harwelden

Harwelden is a historical building, also known as
Harwelden Mansion, and is an English Tudor-styled mansion with Collegiate Gothic elements in Tulsa, Oklahoma that is an Event Center and Bed and Breakfast. It was built in 1923 by a businessman and philanthropist, Earl P. Harwell. Previously owned by the Tulsa Arts and Humanities Society, it is now owned and renovated by Teresa Knox in 2018. The mansion sits on one full city block overlooking the Arkansas River, minutes from the world-renowned Gathering Place.
