Top Of Oklahoma Historical Society Museum Is and has been a great part of Blackwell. I wish this unhappy neighbor had just called the museum. You should voice your opinion to us in a positive manner. I had the chamber change the bell which we at the Hudson and Tucker house hold call Chimes!! For the 4th of July Celebration !! I wish the people of Blackwell would concentrate on the good of Blackwell and the positive things about having a local Museum in this town. We have made many changes and added many wonderful things to your Museum. I apoligize if we have offended anyone. We were just trying to be a great stop for out of towners. Which the people who have visited in the last three months, have enjoyed your local museum. The over 450 people who visited us did enjoy the Museum and liked the chimes!!

Neighbor is not disgruntled. He is disappointed he has invested over a quarter of a million dollars in this neighborhood and the city won't abide by their own noise and disturbing the peace ordinances. The ordinances are very clear. You can read them on the city's own website. What is sad is that a person who is paid a lot of Blackwell taxpayer money and who does not even live in Blackwell tells me to take his bells and like them. I recommend to all to not be or buy in Blackwell. Since my tax dollars are being spent in this way, I started giving my tax dollars to other towns. I used to go out of my way to support local businesses. Can't do it now because it feeds the offensive people who play the bells. In fact, a person involved with the museum asked me to donate some items. Before the bells, I would have gladly done so. Not now. It is sad that offensive people at the city have ruined so much of it.
