Tulsa Ornament / Souvenir - Cain's Ballroom
This ornament honors Cain's Ballroom, home to "Bob Wills" and "The Texas Playboys".
In 1924 Tulsa was the home of Oil Barons, Roughnecks and Cowboys. Madison Cain filled the 8,000 sq. ft., "spring loaded", maple dance floor with young debutantes learning to fox trot, waltz and tango at the Cain's Academy of Dancing at 423 N. Main.
In February of 1934, a young Texas fiddle player named Bob Wills brought his Texas Playboys to Tulsa and the Cain's Ballroom became their home. It also became home of thousands of loyal fans, and is still today a showcase for a variety of musical groups and stars.
Tulsa Ornaments make great souvenirs! My husband and I always buy an ornament when traveling to help us remember where we've been. It's so much fun to reminisce when decorating the tree each year and remember all the places that we've visited and the people we've met. They also make great gifts for your out of town visitors. We have ornaments with several of the major Tulsa landmarks and you can pair them with my landmark art (I carry small 4x4 framed prints) that are perfect gifts to give your visitor to help them remember their visit with you in Tulsa.
