Mission Statement

  • The mission of the Sheerar Museum is to receive and collect the material culture of Stillwater, Oklahoma, dating from prehistoric times, but especially from the 1880s to the present; to preserve those materials for the future; to study them to derive information about the past; and to use the knowledge resulting from such study to interpret to the public the history and culture of the area through all effective means.

Description

Located in a historic setting, the Sheerar Museum of Stillwater History is on the lower level of the Sheerar Cultural and Heritage Center. The historic building was originally constructed in 1928 to house the First Church of Christ Scientist, the first such congregation west of the Mississippi River.

Dedicated to collecting, preserving, and interpreting the history of Stillwater, Oklahoma, the Sheerar Museum seeks to increase public interest in and knowledge of Stillwater history. The Museum features exhibits about Stillwater and Payne County from the first land run that opened Oklahoma Territory for settlement in 1889 to the end of the twentieth century. During 2012, the Museum is redesigning the permanent exhibits that were previously arranged by decades to look at important themes in Stillwater History.
