The original 160-acre claim where this historic site is located was part of the Great Land Run of 1889. The Harn Homestead sits on ten acres of original Land Run property originally owned by William Fremont Harn, one of the state’s early community leaders. Mr. Harn was sent here in 1889 by President Benjamin Harrison to serve as the official Claims Adjuster after the Oklahoma Land Run.

Tour the 1904 Harn House, 1897 Stoney Point one-room schoolhouse, 1904 Shinn Barn, 1900s farmhouse and outhouse, 1890 Shepherd House, and the stone and cedar barn with an enclosed windmill. The historical buildings help both children and adults understand life in Territorial Oklahoma (1889-1907). The Harn Homestead is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
