The Oklahoma State Historic Preservation Office is currently open to the public by appointment only.  All guests are required to wear a mask. For those guests submitting projects, a mailbox has been placed outside the SHPO office door.  Please include a cover letter with your project, and if you require a scanned copy to show receipt by our office, please include an email address.


Certified Local Governments (CLG) Program

Under the CLG program, local governments that enforce appropriate historic preservation zoning ordinances are delegated certain SHPO responsibilities, receive federal matching funds for development of their local preservation program, and participate in the National Register of Historic Places nomination process. For detailed information, contact Shea Otley at 405-522-4485 or sjotley@okhistory.org.
