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 16.
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.
“Gardening at the Fort” Second Saturday Demo *Canceled*
April 11, 1 p.m.–3 p.m.
This event has been canceled.
Fort Towson Historic Site will host “Gardening at the Fort,” the next in its Second Saturday Demo series, on Saturday, April 11, from 1 to 3 p.m. This program will cover the three main gardens of the fort from 1824 to 1854: the hospital garden, the officers’ garden, and the company garden. Participants will learn why certain crops were chosen and how they were grown without commercial chemicals. Visitors will have the opportunity to help the staff to plant the fort’s educational garden while the staff answers questions about the process.
For more information about the event, please contact John Davis at 580-873-2634 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Fort Towson Historic Site is located north of US 70 near Fort Towson.
