Gatewood Historic District Neighborhood

At 320 acres, Gatewood is the biggest historic district in Oklahoma City, situated between the bustling Plaza and Center city Districts. Originally platted in 1922, Gatewood displays homes constructed during this time period. The district was Epworth University's original home (now Oklahoma City University) and is a wonderful combination of historical charm and conveniences in the city center.

During the "Race of '89," the land that is now the Gatewood District was claimed. Andrew Findley resided in the eastern part of the quarter, while Lewis Walch claimed a similar area to the west. Both families started cultivating rapidly and constructed residences that are still standing today. By 1902, possession of both farmlands had switched. Margaret McKinley owned the Walch farm, while the Findley farm had been split between many owners, including Charles F. Colcord and F. From B. Zieglar. As Oklahoma City originally grew to the south and west of the downtown core, the land was still agricultural.
