The Seminole Nation Museum preserves the tribe's history and culture.

Seminole County, located in east-central Oklahoma, was named for the Seminole tribe.  Explorers such as Washington Irving traveled through the area as early as 1832.  The Choctaw, Oklahoma and Gulf Railroad was constructed in Seminole County in the late 1800s.  Seminole County’s economy and population had a major boost when oil was found near Wewoka in 1923 and oil production became a large industry in the area.  Wewoka is the capital of the Seminole Nation.  The Seminole Nation Museum in Wewoka houses Seminole artifacts and presents the history of the Seminole tribe, as well as photos and exhibits showcasing local history.  Wewoka Lake offers camping, fishing and boating.  The Oklahoma Oil Museum is located in Seminole and features displays of oilfield history and equipment. 

In 2000, census records showed 24,894 people living in Seminole County.  Countless resources exist for tracing genealogy in Seminole County.  For more information about genealogy in Seminole County, resources are provided below.
