At the Stillwater History Museum, new exhibits open throughout the year, allowing for a different experience each time you visit.  


Stillwater and World War I

This exhibit highlights Stillwater’s role in supporting the war efforts including the creation of the Payne County Council of Defense.  The exhibit talks about several war support programs and features items from Stillwater’s residents who served in the Great War including Oscar David Houston and Myatt W. Myatt.  The exhibit also includes an interactive for visitors to learn a little about the trench combat that dominated World War I.

No matter how you enjoyed spending your summers, this exhibit will have something for you.
