TULSA – A local real estate team is selling an iconic mansion that once belonged to a well-known Tulsa man.

Unique Properties OK posted a video of a mansion that is up for sale and was once owned by Tate Brady.

Brady was part of Tulsa’s founding and even had a district and street named after him in downtown. In 2011, however, an article shed light on Brady and his past. 

Wyatt Tate Brady came to Tulsa in 1890 as a young shoe salesman from Missouri, signed the city's incorporation papers and built Tulsa's first hotel with baths in the Hotel Brady.

But the once celebrated Tulsan was also a member of the KKK as evidenced by a transcript of an investigation into the Klan involving Brady. 

In 2013, Tulsa city councilors voted on whether or not to rename the Brady District that was originally named after Tate. They voted to change the name to M.B. Brady Street, it is also known as Reconciliation Way.
