Your first stop, when in Nowata, should be our own Historical Museum.
The museum contains twenty-four rooms of history and memories of the
people who began a life of farming, cattle, and eventually oil. Besides the 24 rooms, we have two long halls with displays. The oilfield exhibits are displayed outside the museum. Manned entirely by volunteers and funded by donations, you will learn of our rich history and places to see. This is the largest museum in the surrounding area of Green Country.
Room are dedicated to different eras, some to the oil boom, the World Wars, wood carving, early day tools, ladies' fashions, and an old fashioned kitchen, to name a few. One room holds memories of the Cherokee and Delaware tribes in Nowata County while another room is dedicated to cowboys and girls of yesterday such as the famed Nowata County trick rider, Pauline Nesbitt, national prize winner in 1936.
The museum library contains hundreds of books and photographs.
