HELP US TELL THE STORY

The newly renovated Jones Oklahoma Historical Society museum would greatly appreciate your assistance in expanding our collection, especially in the following areas.

If you have any artifacts, or most especially PHOTOGRAPHS, we would appreciate it very much if you could loan them to us for scanning and copying. We have almost nothing from the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s and only a little from the 50’s.

Photographs can be copied at your residence for your convenience.

1. Jones High School – While we have a nice State Center collection, we have very few artifacts and photos of high school life and alumni from before the 1960’s. Most prized are group, club, team and special occasion photos.

2. Town life and residents – Examples would be street scenes, clubs and organizations, festivals and special events.

3. Military – While we have a good start on our collection of veterans, we have almost nothing of the women, wives and sweethearts that served at home or abroad. Pictures of men in uniform with their significant other would be great additions to our “Soldiers and Sweethearts” collection. Also needed are photos of the WWI and Korean era.

Artifacts can be given to the museum permanently or on loan.

If you have anything you would be willing to share, please feel free to contact us at any time.
