Description

The Canadian County Historical Museum  in El Reno is recognized as one of Oklahoma's outstanding museums. Located in historic Heritage Park the museum sits on the 98th Meridian, which is an important marker from the state's territorial days. During the Land Run of 1889, it was the boundary between the eastern lands open for settlement and the western lands settled by the Cheyenne and Arapaho tribes.

The museum is a complex made up of a series of buildings from the old west that have been renovated and are open to visitors. Head to El Reno and explore a barn, the Darlington Indian Jail, church and the Possum Holler School as well as many other historically significant sites.
