The Kennedy Building: An Everlasting Monument

From the Archives: Müllerhaus Legacy often works with accomplished families who steward historically-significant buildings. BAM Properties, the business of the Bumgarner Family in Tulsa, OK is one such story.

"Make for me a building that will stand for all time to come. Spare no money and don’t leave anything undone that is necessary to produce in the city of Tulsa an everlasting monument. One that will endure throughout all the years and a century from now will still be of complete service to my friends and neighbors and their children.”

Dr. S.G. Kennedy, 1919

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

The Kennedy Building at 321 South Boston Ave, Tulsa was built in two phases between 1915 and 1919.

Like the people responsible for their construction, historically significant properties also have legacies. Fortunately for Tulsa’s Kennedy Building, the Beaux-Arts masterpiece is owned by BAM Properties, a proprietor that understands the value history adds to the community and its bottom line.

To celebrate the building’s centennial, BAM worked with Müllerhaus Legacy to tell the story of Dr. Kennedy and his building. The project was an opportunity to collect and digitize its historical assets.
