Red River Historical and Botanical Markers
Honoring the Past and Present
Pay tribute to loved ones by honoring them with a special Red River Journey Historical or Botanical Marker on the Oklahoma History Center grounds.
Historical markers are placed along the Red River Journey to recognize sites and events from Oklahoma’s captivating past, including land openings, the Red River War, Bloomfield Mission, and the Dragoon Expedition of 1834. Botanical markers highlight specimens of various native trees and plants such as mesquite, post oak, hackberry, and western soapberry.
Each marker is a 10″ x 12″ oval standing twenty-four inches in height and can be reserved with a donation of $500. Markers will include topical information with text reading “In Honor of,” “In Recognition of,” or “Sponsored By” followed by the names of the recognized individuals.
Oklahoma Family Tree Project
Commemorate your family name on the Oklahoma Family Tree. The Family Tree is made up of gold and silver redbud leaves which are affixed to the wall around the base of the tree. Each leaf contains three lines of lettering on a 3″ x 3″ space. The first line is for the family name; the second line lists first name(s), the last line shows a town or county. A brief family history of each family recognized on the tree will be available online and in a digital family history book located next to the sculpture.
The Oklahoma Family Tree is located just outside the Research Centerin the Cooper and Gladys West Atrium Wing and Gallery at the Oklahoma History Center.
We are offering the leaves to sponsors for $1,000 each with the option of paying throughout a two-year pledge period. All proceeds benefit the Annual Giving Campaign. To order by mail, use our printable order form.
