This database is provided to help you explore the great state of Oklahoma.
The BlogOklahoma.us Historic Places Database is an on going project started on May 19, 2005. The information provided in the Historic Places Database was entered in by volunteers who visited or did research about each location. Some historic places may not have any information yet or even be listed. Though we strive for accuracy, some information could be incorrect.

The Oklahoma Historical Society (www.okhistory.org) provides a list on their web site of all the historic markers in Oklahoma. However this list only contains the name of the marker and which county it is in. We have used this list (as of 02/16/2005) to seed the BlogOklahoma.us Historic Places Database. (If you would like a copy of our seed list, visit here.)
Multiple sources including various books, internet web sites, and museum visits provide the information used to build the Oklahoma Historic Places Database.
Exploring Oklahoma History is a labor of love for the great state of Oklahoma.
