A Great Place to Grow

Welcome to the...

City of Edmond

Edmond is a a thriving city with history that dates back prior to statehood. In the 1887 the town was established when the Santa Fe rail line was built in Indian Territory and a station was placed for water and coal. After the 1889 Oklahoma Land Run the town was officially formed. The BNSF freight line still runs through the down today. Besides the railroad, in 1890 Oklahoma established the “Territorial Normal School” (University of Central Oklahoma) with a focus on education. Education has remained a huge influence in Edmond’s economy and it’s growth. The city continues to hold a small town feel with all the conveniences of big city living.

Home Styles In Edmond

Oklahoma has red clay dirt, because of this, homes here are often built with a brick façade. This is also important to withstand our (at times) extreme weather. For many years, traditional design was the primary architectural style in the area. Over the last 10 years we’ve seen more design diversity appear like craftsman, modern farmhouse, mid-century modern, and contemporary.

01.

Traditional

Residential design in Oklahoma has included brick and stone dating all the way back to the land run in 1889. Traditional architecture pulls from multiple historical architectural styles. These homes often feel simple yet classic. There is a love of symmetry in traditional design with very little ornamentation. 

02.

Modern Craftsman

While there isn’t a huge amount of historic craftsman style homes in Edmond, in recent years we have seen a resurgence of the craftsman design. These homes are often built with brick or stone and wood siding.  They often feature exposed rafters, gabled roofs, front porches with support columns and wood framing. The interior is often open floor plan. 

03.

Modern Farmhouse

The Modern Farmhouse is still a huge trend in the Edmond area. This is a 21st century take on the American Farmhouse. These homes often include large front porches, clean lines, rustic wood (flooring, exposed beams, cabinets, etc.), black metal (window frames, door knobs, hardware, stair railing, etc.), neutral color palettes, and industrial accents.
