Who doesn’t love an apartment with historic charm? For some people, a few of our employees included, architectural details and cozy vibe are much more appealing than cookie-cutter new construction. When think about renting in Oklahoma City, most people don’t think there will be many great historic apartments to choose from, but they’re wrong. From a converted high school to a former Art Deco hotel, Oklahoma City has plenty of historic apartments available if you know where to look. Lucky for you, our apartment locators have found three renovated apartments with illustrious past, loads of charm and modern amenities to jump-start your search.
I bet you never thought you’d want to go back to high school, but The Douglass at Page Woodson will make you want to walk through those hallowed halls again. The former site of Douglass High School has been vacant since 1994 until a developer secured permission to restore and re-purpose the school into 60 apartments rather than tear it down. The former high school’s auditorium, which once hosted Jazz great Duke Ellington, has been restored to its former glory and will host events.
The historic apartments are minutes from the OUHSC Campus and minutes from downtown Oklahoma City, Bricktown and Midtown. The classrooms have been transformed into open apartments with a New York loft-style feel. Residents will enjoy the high ceilings, over-sized windows, hardwood floors, modern appliances and dog park.
Current Special: You pick two: 1.) One month free; 2.) Schlegel bicycle; 3.) 32″ flat screen TV; or 4.) Tablet. Don’t forget to ask about all utilities paid option.

When you pass through the gates of The Breighton, you’ll feel like you’re taking a step back in time through Oklahoma City’s illustrious history. Musicians, aviators, artists, socialites – and even Clark Gable for a night – have all called The Breighton home over the past 80 years. Originally built as a neighborhood of apartments, the central street has been replaced by lush grass where you’ll find residents walking their dogs. Over the years a clubhouse and pool have been added to park-like grounds.
Located in the heart of the Paseo District, these brownstones have been transformed into historic apartments with modern updates like all-electric appliances and open-concept living areas. Each home offers a unique floor plan and stunning views of Oklahoma from a private patio or balcony.
