Located in what was the territorial capital, Guthrie, the Oklahoma Territorial Museum tells the fascinating story of pioneer determination. With exhibits about Unassigned Lands, the Land Run of 1889, the homestead experience, territorial and state government, women’s corsets, and old time medicine, this museum presents examples of life in Oklahoma’s early days.

Carnegie Library, where the first state governor was sworn in, is the only domed building that Andrew Carnegie paid for. The preserved library building is interesting itself, and it houses the Logan County Genealogical Society holdings.

From the Oklahoma Territorial Museum website, you can request a genealogical record search. The Logan County Genealogical Society requires payment in advance. One set of resources that they employ for this are the many online offerings of the Oklahoma Historical Society.
