The Outsiders House Museum

Hello everyone, my name is Danny Boy O'Connor. I am one of the founding members of the Hip-Hop group, House of Pain, as well as a collective of urban explorers known as the Delta Bravo Urban Exploration Team.  Those who know me know that I'm one of the biggest fans of S.E. Hinton's book and Francis Ford Coppola's adaptation of The Outsiders.

It was in 2009 when I ended up in Tulsa on tour and made my first pilgrimage to the actual house, better known to fans as "The Curtis Brothers house," that was used in the filming of the 1983 movie. Located at 731 N. St Louis, Tulsa, OK, I was amazed and equally disturbed by the deteriorating condition of the historic house. I thought to myself, Why hasn't anyone stepped in to save this place?  And why doesn't someone restore it and turn it into an Outsiders museum or something?  

Well, it's 2016 and we felt the time is now to step in as buyers before it fell into further disrepair and perhaps eventual demolition. Just this week we got a small group of friends together and purchased the house, but the battle is far from over.

Unfortunately, the home is in extremely poor condition but there is hope and that's where you come in. We're in dire need of financial support from you, the fan of The Outsiders, to make this a reality.

Now that we purchased the Curtis’ home we need you to help finance the total restoration of this historic house to its authentic movie condition and turn it into the first ever museum dedicated solely to The Outsiders. As you can see by the photos, the house will need to be completely restored and remodeled carefully without losing it’s beautiful “Greaser” charm while also updating the home to modern standards.

Once restored, we plan to open the house to the public and showcase our extensive "Outsiders" collection as a pop culture museum.  

 With your help, we can save this amazing piece of iconic American film history for future generations of fans to discover and enjoy. Please consider contributing generously to this once-in-a-lifetime project; and please share this with your friends who love The Outsiders as much as we do!


Thank you and as always, Stay Gold,
