What Have We Been Up to This Month?
We held several events this month, and all in the same weekend! Wow. The 1970 Class Reunion, the Blowout, and a large amount of tourists equal a busy month for us.
We are updating the African-American History of Sapulpa display! We are excited to share the legacy, the stories, the struggles and triumphs, and the people of Sapulpa. Here is a preview of what is to come - histories of "Businesses of Sapulpa", "Olentine School & Lowrance School 1906 To 1964", "Booker T. Washington High School 1910s through the 1940s", "Booker T. Washington High School 1960s to Present", "Oklahoma Baptist College (Training School) 1914 to 1922", "The People of Sapulpa", and "Jim Crow and Ku Klux Klan in Sapulpa".
