About Us

 

We conduct regular membership meetings with interesting and informative programs designed to stimulate interest in state and local history while maintaining an emphasis on Oklahoma City and the surrounding Oklahoma County.  Each year we honor individuals, from both past and present, whose efforts and accomplishments have shaped the fabric of our city and county.  These honorees are deemed “Pathmakers” as their contributions have led the path in the very making of history.


We assist and work closely with The Oklahoma Historical Society, The Oklahoma Heritage Association, and other statewide organizations in matters pertaining to the history of Oklahoma City and Oklahoma County.  As a historical organization we offer our assistance upon request by these and other worthwhile organizations.We conduct regular membership meetings with interesting and informative programs designed to stimulate interest in state and local history while maintaining an emphasis on Oklahoma City and the surrounding Oklahoma County.  Each year we honor individuals, from both past and present, whose efforts and accomplishments have shaped the fabric of our city and county.  These honorees are deemed “Pathmakers” as their contributions have led the path in the very making of history.

 

2009 marked the 30th anniversary of the OCCHS.  Over the years we have amassed a very sizeable collection of artifacts, of all possible description, representing the history of our area.  It is our goal to actively present these treasures of history to the public in a number of different public forums to help raise the awareness of how historically significant Oklahoma City and County has been to the development of the state.

We currently have numerous projects in the works and many can be viewed on the current projects page. OCCHS is a not-for-profit, all volunteer organization and we welcome anyone who would like to become involved in our efforts.  We are a dedicated group who feel that we would like to make a sincere effort to preserve for the next generation the history of our area.
