Construction on the long-anticipated Visitor Center at Honey Springs Battlefield is complete. The Visitor Center is a partnership between the OHS, McIntosh County, local businesses, the National Park Service, and three agencies of the United States Department of Agriculture. New exhibits are in development, and the Visitor Center will open to the public in 2018.
The site offers visitors the opportunity to enjoy hiking and area wildlife while learning about the Battle of Honey Springs and the impact of the Civil War on American Indians in Indian Territory.
The Visitor Center has been a dream since the first land was acquired to secure the battlefield in 1964. Over the years many individuals have contributed to securing the land, developing a road and walking trails through the site. The battlefield was designated a National Historic Landmark in 2013 in recognition of its historical importance.
If you would like to contribute toward the building construction, exhibit development or to retire the building debt, contact OHS Museums and Sites Director Kathy Dickson at 405-522-5231 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Sponsorship opportunities are available.
