Welcome to the Maple Ridge Neighborhood Association Website
About Maple Ridge
The Maple Ridge Neighborhood was established in the early 1900s in the heart of Tulsa when the area was still considered Indian Territory. Many of Tulsa’s early oil barons built their homes in Maple Ridge. The north side of Maple Ridge was once known as the “Silk Stocking” district.
Several of the streets meander like a European boulevard through the neighborhood. With its tree lined center median, Madison Avenue was patterned along the lines of the boulevards found in Paris. Madison Avenue became known as “Black Gold Row” because it was the center of the Silk Stocking district and many of the residents made their money from oil.
Today, Maple Ridge has approximately 1,800 households and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is a diverse area that includes historic homes, apartments, condominiums and townhouses. Maple Ridge continues to be one of the most beautiful and historic residential areas in Tulsa.
Maple Ridge sponsors several neighborhood-wide events including: the Memorial Day Run, the Home & Garden Tour and the Holiday Party.
