An article from The Oklahoman, July 14, 1967 about the opening of the Old Town Museum
Elk City – Western Oklahoma residents are expected to throng to Elk City Friday night for the formal opening of Elk City’s Old Town Museum.
The project, proposed about 15 years ago, was financed by a $25,000 bond issued and $10,000 in donations. The 11-room gray house on the west edge of Elk City is furnished with items provided by western Oklahoma residents.
The replica of an Elk City home of 60 years ago is the first phase of the project.
Two performances of a melodrama by the Elk City Theatre Guild, a tour of the museum and a speech at 8 p.m. by Bill Burchardt, editor of Oklahoma Today, are included in the schedule planned for the formal opening.
