It wasn’t easy at a time when people began to leave for the suburbs. Homes were left for developers to purchase and demolish for commercial buildings. People were giving up on Heritage Hills and after a period of time, neighbors had to ban together if they wanted to save the historical integrity of the neighborhood and their homes. In 1964, the OKC Mayor at the time, George Shirk, helped establish the first Historic Preservation Commission with the help from three different neighborhood associations when the State Department said they wanted to put in a highway right through the neighborhood.
