This month has been different, to say the least. We have been closed for tours and the public, but does not mean we took time off. Some of our volunteers have been working in our photo collections, some have been working on archives in the obituaries, and others had some homework. Our Collections Manager is currently in grad school at University of Oklahoma, and has had homework over digitization our collection - the homework project, which will be completed soon, is the digitization of the City Directories from 1907 to 2009.
The Sapulpa Historical Museum may be closed, however, we are still working hard for you and our community. From the Oklahoma Historical Society and Oklahoma Museum Association, we are following their guidance to practice safe, social distancing, and possible reopening procedures:
We will be starting Office Hours for the Midtown Mini Storage, starting May 6th. Our office hours will be: Wednesday & Thursday, 9 AM to 1 PM.
The first priority of the Sapulpa Historical Society is the health and safety of our patrons, volunteers, and staff. SHS sites and affiliates are closed to the public at least until June 1, 2020. We will keep you updated as the situation develops. We appreciate your cooperation during this time. If you'd like to contact us:
