REBUILDING COMMUNITIES ONE BRICK AT A TIME.
We are passionate about preserving and restoring historic buildings. The simple idea of Brickhugger has seen growth from just one property in Tulsa to dozens of new development opportunities from Oklahoma to Texas and beyond. Behind every new project and every property is the same family and philosophy that “The Greenest Build is always the Original”. Preserving these properties in harmony with the natural features and resources surrounding the site has huge environmental, economic and social benefits. Our goal is to preserve the past for the betterment of the future.

Located on the Arkansas River, on lands that were once part of the Creek and Cherokee nations, Tulsa County was created at statehood and took its name from the town of Tulsa in the Creek Nation, Indian Territory. The name, Tulsa, is derived from Tulsey Town, an old Creek settlement in Alabama. Tulsa County is a beautiful combination of hills, bluffs, and wide open prairies, which serve as a dividing line between the Ozark ridges to the East, and the broad plains to the West.
Due to the lush, rolling hills, Tulsa County is often called Oklahoma’s gateway to “Green Country”. The western tip of the county reaches Lake Keystone, while the Arkansas River, in its wide bed, rolls southeastward across the county. Cattle, horse ranches, and rich farmland lay almost within the shadow of urban buildings.
The county boasts Oklahoma’s second largest city, Tulsa - where energy, aviation, finance, computer, and electronics bases are supported by a broad complex of institutes of higher learning. Surrounding this core is a rapidly growing ring of suburban cities, including Broken Arrow, Bixby, Collinsville, Glenpool, Jenks, Mannford, Owasso, Sand Springs and Skiatook. A secondary ring of thriving rural communities includes the towns of Liberty and Sperry. Beyond these areas, and close at hand, Tulsa County is filled with quiet wooded areas, while near downtown Tulsa is the Council Oak Tree, the historic meeting place for the Creek, Cherokee, and Osage nations. From the early Native American inhabitants to the cattlemen, the coming of the railroads, and the oil boom, the history of Tulsa County runs rich and deep.
The University of Arkansas Rich Mountain continues the tradition of being a comprehensive community college providing a broad range of educational programs and learning opportunities in the three county service area. In 2017, when the merger with the University of Arkansas System was finalized, the college name changed to the University of Arkansas Rich Mountain. During the decision making process, the RMCC Board of Trustees and administrators wanted to retain the identity we had as Rich Mountain Commuity College since 1983 and as Rich Mountain Vo-Tech with its beginnings in 1973. With over forty years of presence in the service area, UA Rich Mountain has been at the forefront of progress. Its mission to provide educational opportunities for the region continues to guide programming, services, and involvement in its communities.
The service area of Polk, Montgomery, and Scott counties remains the same as does the College mission. The main campus is in Mena with permanent off-campus sites in Mount Ida and Waldron.
UA Rich Mountain faculty and staff are commited to student success. During the most recent 2014 Higher Learning Commission visit, the visiting team commented that it was evident to them the College “lives the mission.” In the 2004 HLC accreditation report, the College was recognized as “a model rural community college.”
UA Rich Mountain exists to provide all residents of the Ouachita Mountain Region with exemplary educational and enrichment opportunities to improve the quality of life and standard of living.
You, too, can join the tradition!
