Join the Oklahoma Historical Society, or renew your existing membership, and help keep Oklahoma's history vibrant and accessible for present and future generations!

Individuals who join the OHS forge a closer bond with the American Indians who first settled these lands, with the cowboys who brought the range cattle industry to the prairies, with the pioneers of all races who sought opportunity in a new territory and state, with the oilmen and agriculturalists who provided the backbone of the state's economy, with Oklahomans who endured the Dust Bowl and Great Depression, with those who rebounded from natural and man-made disasters, with civil rights pioneers, sports heroes, public servants, entertainers, artists, merchants, professionals, urban builders, industrialists, and with those who have given their lives in the service of their state and nation.

The OHS collects, preserves, and shares the stories of these remarkable people with thousands of students and adults every year. Tax-deductible membership donations support the creation of new exhibits, education programs, special events, and publications that bring our history alive.
