Cherokee Strip Museum [OK]

Located on five acres of land about an hour north of Oklahoma City, the Cherokee Strip Museum provides an opportunity to explore the remarkable events and people who made up the history of the Cherokee Outlet. The Cherokee Strip was created in 1835 in order to fulfill terms of an agreement by the US government and the Cherokee people to create an "outlet" for the Cherokee people out west. The museum chronicles the history of this territory.

The museum offers tours and exhibits, as well as the Rose Hill School, which offers a living history exhibition showing modern day schoolchildren what school was like in the days of the single-room schoolhouse. The site offers visitor information, a brief history of Cherokee outlet, as well as nine online exhibits and information about upcoming events.
