Once considered the outer suburbs of Oklahoma City, Putnam Heights has quickly grown into one of the top mid-city neighborhoods in the urban core. Primarily comprised of two-story homes, Putnam Heights has fewer than 150 structures within its boundaries, adding to its desirability as one of the smallest of Oklahoma City's seven historic neighborhoods. Through the years, residents of this diverse community have continued to restore and revitalize the area's historic charm in the midst of the bustling urban city that surrounds it.
