Pushmataha County Historical Society Museum
Get a taste of turn of the century life at the Pushmataha County Historical Society Museum in Antlers, Oklahoma. The building itself, the historic Frisco Depot, is a fascinating relic from the golden age of railroad travel. It is also a poignant reminder of the effects of segregation and the racial inequality of the time with its separate waiting rooms and bathrooms.
Among the many artifacts housed in the Pushmataha County Historical Society Museum is a unique, large-sized wall map, published in the early 1900s with markers for many villages, schools and train stations that have long since disappeared. The museum also houses a research library with an impressive collection of historical documents, unpublished manuscripts, historic photographs and a complete microfilm collection of every county newspaper since January 1900. Plan a trip to Antlers and learn more about the fascinating history of Pushmataha County at this one of a kind museum.
