OKLAHOMA CITY — On Friday, August 26, from 6 to 8 p.m., Preservation Oklahoma will continue its History and Hops series with “Mid-Century Modern Architecture,” a presentation by Lynda Ozan. This event will take place in the Carriage House of the Henry and Anna Overholser Mansion located at 405 NW 15th St. in Oklahoma City.
