Notes on the Geography of Oklahoma: Midtown Oklahoma City: Photo 22
Two blocks away and a copy of a home in Philadelphia, this immense house at 1415 Hudson was built in 1905 for E. H. Cooke. Cooke was a banker and in 1919 created the First National Bank from a failed predecessor. He sold this house that same year, with furnishings, for $50,000. The buyer was an attorney, Frank Wilson, and the house is still popularly called the Cooke-Wilson House. In 1964, the Standard Life Insurance company bought it with the intention of knocking it down to create a parking lot for its adjoining offices, which occupied the demolished Colcord Mansion on 13th Street. Neighbors protested and the company instead converted the home to apartments. The house was later restored to single-family occupancy, but ownership has bounced around with sales in 1993, 1999, 2002, 2002 again, and 2005. The sale in 1993 was for $455,000; in 2005, for $950,000.
