Tulsa Coliseum circa 1943

The Tulsa Coliseum is a historic indoor arena built in Tulsa, Oklahoma at the corner of Fifth Street and Elgin Avenue. Construction began on the building in 1925. The building was destroyed by fire apparently caused by a lightning strike on September 20, 1952.

The arena was the original home of the Tulsa Oilers who played their first game there on January 1, 1929 against the Duluth Hornets. That event not only officially opened the Coliseum, but also served as an introduction to ice hockey for the city of Tulsa. The facility boasted a $25,000 organ.
