We are currently closed to the public.

The first priority of the Oklahoma Historical Society is the health and safety of our patrons, volunteers, and staff. We stand with our fellow Oklahomans in the effort to contain the spread of COVID-19. We have closed our sites and affiliates to the public through April 30.

In an effort to minimize gatherings, all OHS-sponsored events are canceled or postponed through May 2, and some events have been canceled beyond that date. We are posting all changes on our events calendar to keep you updated as the situation develops.

Thank you for your support and for being part of the OHS community.

“Cemetery Symbols: Carved in Stone” program

October 31, 1 p.m.3 p.m.

Event Navigation

Join us as we explore the meaning behind historic gravestones on Saturday, October 31, from 1 to 3 p.m. Gravestones and cemeteries are rich in a language of symbols. Symbols can be difficult to interpret because their meaning changes over time. By examining the grave markers, one can learn more than just the person’s name. This class will provide the skills necessary to investigate the past through tombstones. The cost is $5 for OHS members and $10 for nonmembers. Registration opens on September 19 and closes on October 15.
