Reviews for Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center Inc
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.
