Since 1972, the Western Oklahoma Historical Society has honored area persons for contributing to the preservation of Western Oklahoma heritage and culture, the economic wellbeing of the area, or the positive perception of Western Oklahoma and its citizens. Inductees are chosen annually and honored with a banquet and a commemorative plaque. A large plaque hangs in the Old Town Museum with the names of all inductees and the year of their induction.
