There’s No House In The World Like This One In Oklahoma

Note: as of September 2020, this attraction is permanently closed. 

In 1961, architect Herb Greene built the Prairie Chicken House for himself and his family in Norman, Oklahoma. Greene’s Prairie House caused an international sensation when it was published in color in Life and Look magazines, The London Time Journals, and journals throughout Europe and Japan. The house quickly became a symbol of organic modernism. There are 2100 square feet of living area, a granite paved ramp and entry, carport, and a screened porch to stand on the roof 25 feet above ground.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
