New Exhibit at THS

There is a wonderful new exhibit that just opened in the main gallery at the Tulsa Historical Society covering our Tulsa history from 1878-1900.  Along with lots of interesting old photos there are some great artifacts as well, including items from the Perryman Ranch.  Here is more about it from OETA:

From the Oklahoma Historical Site archives, we find much regarding the early Perryman Family of Tulsa. see: http://digital.library.okstate.edu/encyclopedia/entries/P/PE019.html I have always wondered why, since they managed the first government Post Office as well as store, isn't Josiah Perryman attributed as the founder of Tulsa? Further, during the 100th celebration of Tulsa, I remember reading in the Tulsa World newspaper that the original letters of incorporation of the city of Tulsa have never actually been found. They were lost enroute to / from Muskogee. Mom Shahan

In this exhibit the Perryman family is given proper acknowledgement of their contribution to the founding of Tulsa.
I know that THS has the letters of incorporation. I am assuming they are the originals....
Thank you for your comments!
