Our venue has its historic heritage. The White House Mansion was built in 1911, originally located at 1856 E 15th Street. It was the largest house on Cherry Street in Tulsa. In 1980, an accountant bought the property and the house was going to be bulldozed for an office building. Bill Satterfield, the previous owner of the mansion, took 33 loads on flatbed trucks to move the structure materials to 1 West 81st Street. It took from 1980 to 1985 to reassemble it.
The ballroom addition on the back is the old bowling alley from Utica Square. It was the largest structure in Utica Square, located between Mrs. Jacksons and the Olive Garden. It was built in 1953 and was a city block long. It was burned about 15 years later in 1968.
When the previous owner, Bill, was re-erecting the White House, he found about the remaining bowling alley lanes. The lanes were nine and a half inches thick. They required a substantial support base to hold them up.
About the same time, the old Riverside Drive-In on East 71st Street was being sold. The drive-in was located where the current McDonald’s restaurant operates. Bill, purchased the drive-in for the huge screen. The screen had large rectangular shaped beams in the structure that were strong enough to support the bowling alley floor. He moved the beams to 81st Street where they were placed in the foundation to support the ballroom floor.
The history portion is an excerpt from an interview with Bill Satterfield by Roy Heim, President of Tulsa Historic Society.
