The Old Town Museum complex is the steward for the present generation in preserving those moments of life experienced in settings like the interior of the Rock Bluff School, the Pioneer Chapel and early day pioneer doctor's office. Enjoy a dinner theatre production in our Opera House and take a stroll around Cowtown watering hole.
The Elk City Old Town Museum Complex stands as a memorial to the Western Oklahoma pioneers who walked confidently in the direction of their dreams and endeavored to live the lives they imagined. The devotion and sacrifice of these Western Oklahoma settlers in the adventure of securing homesteads through the Cheyenne and Arapaho land run of April 19, 1892 and building the community of Elk City was an achievement destined by choice.
The history captured in the artifacts and mementos of these moments that can never happen again are visual "biographettes" of many devoted men and women. The Elk City Old Town Museum Complex honors the pioneers of the past and guides and encourages the new generation of leaders toward the future through their energies and dedication to enhance the quality of life in Elk City.
