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.
Voices from Hunter’s Home: The Artists exhibit opens
Hunter’s Home is temporarily closed.
Hunter’s Home in Park Hill will debut a new exhibit, Voices from Hunter’s Home: The Artists, to continue the celebration of the 175th anniversary of the construction of Hunter’s Home. This exhibit brings to light the contributions of the unknown artists who enabled this grand site to shine in its surroundings. The great care that would have gone into making this mansion into a home is evident throughout the house.
On Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays throughout the month of April, living history interpreters dressed in 19th-century attire will demonstrate skills and crafts such as faux graining doors, painting floor cloths, and marbling fireplaces. An immense amount of work would have gone into helping the site reflect the elegance and status of the Murrells, and the interpreters will showcase some of these beautiful techniques.
Hunter’s Home is located at 19479 E. Murrell Home Road in Park Hill. Regular hours of operation are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Living history season is still in full swing, with period demonstrations on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. For more information about this exhibit or other programs, please call 918-456-2751 or email email@example.com.
