Boley is one of the few all-black towns with a formal museum dedicated to its history. The small collection is in a 1908 home that was named a National Historic Landmark in 1975. The town is expanding the facility. Displays include historic photos, bricks made by the Boley Brick Company in 1912, soda bottles from the Boley Carbonated Works and an advertisement for the 1921 "baffling western mystery," "The Crimson Skull." According to the ad, the film was "produced in the all colored city of Boley, Oklahoma," with an "all-colored cast" and "30 colored cowboys."
Hours: The Boley Historical Museum can be visited by appointment.
