Jones Historical Society Museum: Jones, OK

The Jones Historical Society Museum is located in Jones, Oklahoma. I had the privilege of stopping by their museum and looking around! They have a cool collection of local history items and an old railroad car next to the museum!

Museum History

The Jones Historical Society Museum was founded in 2001 by a group of citizens that wanted to preserve the history of the town. The Museum collections consists of artifacts and photographs. They are always looking to add more items or photos to their collection (if anyone from Jones comes across this article – please reach out to them via their website).

*All photos were taken at the Jones Historical Society in Jones, Oklahoma.

The museums is actually housed in an old train depot that the Catholic Church of Jones wanted to sell. So, the historical society purchased the building for $7,000.00! The Jones Historical Society has over 200 members and welcome new people to join.

Historian Tip: Look up the local historical society where you live and see how you can become involved! Memberships to local history societies are usually under $50 for an entire year. The memberships help preserve local history and you get cool benefits too!

Concluding Thoughts

The Jones Historical Society Museum was a neat little local museum and I am very grateful that I had an opportunity to go check it out. I hope you’ll contact them and go see the museum as well!

Travel Tip: Make sure to research out to the local history museums when you take a road trip. You never know what kind of treasures you will find or what awesome people you will meet!

Happy Traveling! I’ll talk to ya soon! 🙂
