The museum's permanent gallery features exhibits about the history of Sand Springs and life in an early 20th century industrial community.
Celebrating 100 Years of Sand Springs
If you haven’t been to the museum lately, you are in for a surprise. Glass shelves and sliding glass doors now house pictures and artifacts that tell the story of Sand Springs development. There are items to give you a glimpse of Charles Page vision of an industrial community including surveying and office equipment (no computers but other modern day marvels for the times), poultry farm, dairy, railway, dam, recreation at Sand Springs Lake Park, as well as personal family legacy stories.

The industry section includes the Power Plant (1911), Kerr Chimney Plant (1914), Cotton Mill and Green House (1940’s), Box Factory, Armco / Sheffield, and many other businesses who have come, gone, or stayed in the community over the last century.

The people section shows the diverse character of the community having athletes, doctors, performers, artists, educators, celebrities, photographers, politicians, and even an astronaut. The police and fire started as volunteers and acquired more modern uniforms and vehicles as the town grew. And there were things we did at church, events, and civic clubs.
