Holmes Peak
Tulsa



"If you keep along yonder, by the edge of the prairie, you will come to a bald hill, with a pile of stones upon it."
"I have noticed that hill as I was hunting," said the Captain.
Excerpt from A Tour on the Prairies by Washington Irving (1835)


Holmes Peak 
The American will be located atop Holmes Peak, seven miles northwest of downtown Tulsa, Oklahoma.
  • Holmes Peak is the highest point in five counties, rising up above rolling hills and vast stretches of natural grassland in the Osage Hills.
  • Once called Bald Hill, this rich historical site was an important Indian observation point used by hunting parties as they surveyed the land for buffalo.
  • It was also a landmark for the Indians and early settlers.
  • In 1832, the author Washington Irving toured the Bald Hill area and wrote about his trip in a book called A Tour on the Prairies (1835).
