Bartlesville Area History Museum The Bartlesville Area History Museum, a 10,000 sq. ft. facility is located on the top floor of the City Center, a historic building that once was home to the Hotel Maire during the Bartlesville oil boom. The community has a rich and colorful heritage with roots traced back to the Delaware, Cherokee, and Osage peoples who lived in the region before the arrival of white settlers.
