TULSA, Oklahoma (AP) — It was a central set piece in the 1983 movie, “The Outsiders.” A low-slung white bungalow in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with a wide front porch. The house has now been turned into the Outsiders House Museum, dedicated to preserving the memory of the movie and the 1967 novel on which it was based.
