ONE FOR THE OKLAHOMA HISTORY BOOK

By: Max J. Nichols

One of the primary goals of the Oklahoma Historical Society for generations has been the presentation of significant military sites and exhibits, ranging from American Indian and Civil War projects of the 19th century to World War II installations and even a missile site of the 1960s.

ONE FOR THE OKLAHOMA HISTORY BOOK

By: Max J. Nichols 

Since the passage of the National Preservation Act of 1966, the Oklahoma Historical Society (OHS) has entered into federal, state and local partnerships to preserve historic sites across Oklahoma, including research projects to bring structures back to their original states and rehabilitation of  structures for adaptive reuses. The stockade at Fort Gibson, which was established in 1824 at the crossroads of the Three Forks where the Arkansas, Verdigris and Grand Rivers converged south of the Ozark Plateau, was reopened on April 22. The Overholser Mansion in Oklahoma City and the Frank Phillips Home in Bartlesville also display major restorations.
