Reviews for Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband and I have been involved with the museum forever and have been so excited to watch it bloom into such a wonderful experience for folks of all ages. People are anxious to tell you (as a volunteer) about their experiences and childhoods and how "my grandparents made the run and loved to tell all about it."
The museum is great and getting even better, and we couldn't have a better staff of folks who so involved with and caring for our museum!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Social activities, civic activities, educational activities.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Continue to add educational activities and promote it.

The Heritage Center presents a wonderful glimse into the history of Northern Oklahoma. It displays the hard work, determination and dedication that it took to develop an open praire into a modern part of the American fabric in the shortest time period in history. The presentation is extremely well done and can be viewed at the pace of the visitor. Wonderful!!!

As a citizen of Enid and a preservationist, I view the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center has one of the greatest assets in the State of Oklahoma. The Center provides guests an opportunity to share in the rich regional history of pioneers throughout the years (Past and Present); indivdiuals, who came to Oklahoma to built their homes, grow their businesses, and live their lifes. The story the Center tells is one of our nation's and state's growth from before statehood until today. The Regional Heritiage Center is both a history and a research center that should be included on everyone's bucket list of places to visit. I invite every to come to Enid to share the Northwest Oklahoma experience (past, present, future).

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've toured the Center and the Village. I've used the research section located in the basement. I've attended events at the Center and the Village.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Always look toward expansion and new on-site programs, exhibits, and events .

The Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center is a gem. This museum tells the stories of those who settled this area after the Great Land Run, plus it teaches leadership lessons which are still relevant to business leaders today. The Center is a dynamic community organization with a full calendar of brown bag luncheons, family events and traveling exhibits. Beautiful exhibits, interesting artifacts, knowledgable staff and a completely remodeled "campus" make this someplace to add to your "to do" list for sure.

I am delighted to have the history of community well documented through the efforts of the CSRHC.

If I had more time, I would volunteer here during the days when school groups come through the school to experience what it was like to attend school in a one room school house.

This is a museum our "personal history". Everybody in North and Northwest Oklahoma knows somebody that is featured in one or some of the exhibits. Our history started in 1893 with those who "made the Run". The Native's history was far earlier, and we are each represented in intimate detail that allows us to appreciate those who were here before us. A "Window to Our Past" has to be experienced to be appreciated.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Personal satisfaction and edification

I would not make any changes in the near future.

As a Volunteer, I have gained a lot of knowledge about the Cherokee Strip Heritage Resource Center that I didn't have before and have gained a vast amount of respect and admiration for the work they do. Their commiotment to the community and the legacy of the Cherokee Strip is always visible. What a great place to visit and I enjoy being a volunteer at this first class facility.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have witnessed several people uncovering information about their ancestry and how their families fit into the history of the area.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Improve their data processing by upgrading their equipment to allow faster processing of pictures and information which could make it easier to do research.

The Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center tells the story of the greatest Land Run of all mankind and the history of its pioneers. It is Smithstonian quality and exciting and fun to visit. My grandparents who made the run on that hol day, September 16th, 1893, would be very of this wonderful heritage center. Bert Mackie
