Exploring Oklahoma History is just for the fun of seeing what there is to see in the great state of Oklahoma, and to possibly learn a little something along the way.

Our family has always loved stopping to read the historical markers along the highway. There is just so much to learn and see in our great state of Oklahoma. So, we started this website to catalog and share these historic places.

We began the Historic Places Database on May 19, 2005. The information provided in the database is entered in by volunteers who visited or did research about each location. Some entries may not have any information yet or even be listed. Though we strive for accuracy, some information could be incorrect.

All labor in maintaining the website is donated by volunteers. Exploring Oklahoma History currently does not accept any promotions or monetary donations. We do display Google and Amazon ads, we hope in an unobtrusive way. We also have a CafePress Store for t-shirts and coffee mugs with our logo on them.

Unless otherwise noted, information provided in the Historic Places Database is listed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License. The Exploring Oklahoma History badge logo and BlogOklahoma.us script logos are copyright K. Latham.

Exploring Oklahoma History (blogoklahoma.us) is part of the Blog Oklahoma family of websites.

Exploring Oklahoma History is currently not affiliated with any other historical group, society, organization, or business.

Exploring Oklahoma History is a labor of love for the great state of Oklahoma.
