The renovation of the new Nowata Museum building (formerly the Landers Grocery) is essentially complete. We want to give the public a chance to view the improvements before beginning to construct exhibits, etc. An open house is planned for Monday, February 29th, from 1:00 to 3:00 PM. The building is located across the street from the Depot Cafe.
This will be the most modern museum in this part of the state and will be a fantastic addition to the culture in Nowata. The Nowata Historical Society invites you to come have refreshments with us and see the progress that has been made so far.
The work of inventory, cataloging, and packing the museum items is ongoing, and we expect to have our Grand Opening in July of 2016.
We value all the contractors that made the renovation such a success.

The original museum site was in the former Clinic run by Dr Wheeler in the mid 40’s into the 50’s and later. His son was my friend in grade school in 48-50 and we would stop by the Clinic after school on the way to the Wheeler house on Pecan St. I’m sorry to see it move, but guess time marches on.
