Garland County Historical Society

“Make Room for History” Expansion Campaign

After 57 years of dedicated historical archiving, the Garland County Historical Society has run out of space at our 328 Quapaw Avenue building to house and preserve our irreplaceable collections.

Our “Make Room for History” building expansion campaign will enable us to add 1500 square feet to our building.

The expansion will include more archival storage space (with movable shelving), a larger reading/research room, a clean fire-suppression system for archival areas, and a new central heat and air system.

The Oaklawn Foundation is providing a grant to fund about two-thirds of this vitally needed expansion. French Architects has donated the plans for the expansion. But we need your help, too!

Please help us continue to serve Garland County, its heritage, and its people with this expansion project.

Donate! We welcome donations of any amount. All donations are tax-deductible.
