Local residents have provided the 5,000 square foot masonry building, labor, and materials to create a place for the use and pleasure of the citizens of Krebs, Oklahoma as well as to perpetuate the early Americans, Native Americans, and various ethnic cultures of this region. The building is located on historic main street in the vicinity of the Old Opera House and Dreamland Theatre along the street where the "trolley" once ran.
On the outside, the ancient Greek columns give the building a distinguished architectural prominence while a unique collage of the history of early establishments, merchants, portraits, and industries wraps around the north and east entry.
Inside are thirty-one galleries highlighting the early day immigrants with heirlooms and portraits. The center portion features a rare collection of band instruments and one of the most extensive military exhibits of the area dating from the Revolutionary War, territorial day, Civil War era, as well as World Wars I and II, Korea, Vietnam, and Desert Storm containing currency, weapons, sabers, and German artifacts as well.
Old implements, tools, and coal mining equipment, hand tools, a water well, buggy, and surrey fill the north side of the building alongside the library of state and world history, historical videos, periodicals, and commemorative plates.
