Henryetta Territorial Museum

In this very scenic area of Green Country, Henryetta is appropriately known as the “City of Seven Hills”.  Henryetta is conveniently located near Oklahoma's largest lake, Lake Eufaula and at the intersection of I-40 and U.S. Hwy 75.

A vibrant Main Street, largely built during the boom days of the 1900's, still welcomes locals and visitors alike to shop the many retail stores. A number of the brick buildings, including the opera house and theater, were built with bricks from area kilns.

One of the Oklahoma attractions in Henryetta is the award-winning Henryetta Territorial Museum, housed in Henryetta's 1905 one-room school.

Henryetta has a number of favorite sons, two of which are "cowboys".  Jim Shoulders, 16-time World Champion Cowboy and inventor of the mechanical bull and former Dallas Cowboy quarterback, Troy Aikman.  Both are subjects of exhibits housed in the Museum.



The Museum also served as the:

  • Town hall
  • Public library
  • Presbyterian Church
  • Dentist's office
  • Dance studio
  • Even a murder trial!
  • The museum is also the home to the nationally recognized Joseph W. Hardin Photography Collection, and is well worth the visit.
