1893 Land Run Historical Center

Daily Operations Manager LaTasha Jennings 

The Open House and Ribbon Cutting ceremony for the 1893 Land Run Historical Center (LRHC) was held Saturday, September 23, 2017. The historical center is located on the northwest corner of U.S. Highway 81 and Cherokee Street (east-west Main Street) in downtown Medford, Grant County, Oklahoma.

The new center is multi-functional, providing education for youth and adults by preserving and artfully displaying, in a modern museum type setting, the history of the development, in which 8,389,120 acres of public lands were distributed in the Cherokee Outlet of Northern Oklahoma, the largest land run.

Our Mission

  • To preserve the history of our parents, grandparents and other forefathers who entered this area of Oklahoma on September 16,1893  in the Land Run.
  • To educate their descendants and future generations about the event and the sacrifices they made to achieve their dreams of owning a plot of ground on which to grow crops and achieve the American Dream.
  • To learn about the families that settled this land and made it the bread basket of the world
