Description

The Eskridge Hotel in Wynnewood was built in 1907, the same year that Oklahoma became a state. It remained a working hotel and boarding house until the early 1970s. The hotel-turned-museum features three floors filled with furnishings and items from the late 1800s to mid-1900s depicting life back then. These display rooms include an old school room, Black history room, vintage photo gallery, funeral parlor, barber shop, tack room, armed forces room, old general store, post office, doctor's office, WWII memorial, Native American heritage room, old hotel room, sewing room, dress shop and more.

Some of the displays include a player piano, two old bank safes, old kitchen utensils and appliances (such as an ice box and pot belly stove),  school sports pictures and trophies from as far back as 1909, a spinning wheel and loom, a side saddle, an old hair-perming machine and curling irons, a mold for bullets (thought to have been used in Civil War times), several treadle sewing machines, and many more unusual items not in use today.  

A wide variety of interesting and unique collections are scattered throughout the museum;  these include, among others, an assortment of  jars (one of which is dated 1858), bottles and soda pop bottles, vintage ladies'  hats and shoes, antique children's toys, quilts and doilies, and trophies from one of the premier race horse breeders of the country. A tour of the historic Eskridge Hotel Museum is a mini-vacation, where visitors can view the everyday life of Oklahoma settlers at the turn of the century and experience a part of that era.

The Eskridge Hotel Museum is also rumored to be haunted, and various paranormal teams have reported multiple spirit sightings at this unique attraction.  For years, stories have circulated that the sounds of footsteps, voices, furniture moving, knocking, and music can be heard at various times throughout the old hotel. Late night visitors are said to have seen dark shadows darting through the rooms, as well as third floor mannequins moving on their own. Visit the beautiful old Eskridge Hotel Museum and decide for yourself.
