Summer Exhibit at the Moore-Lindsay House
Beginning June 9th, the Moore-Lindsay House will host a new exhibition entitled, “All About Letters: Historical Letter Writing in Early Oklahoma.” The exhibit will be available for viewing during regular museum hours until August 26th. A special exhibit opening event will be held Friday, June 9th from 6:00-9:00 with light refreshments and interactive activities for all ages.
This exhibition will feature letters from early Oklahomans in Cleveland County and will explore the role of letter writing in business, correspondence, and family history. Letter writing was vital for communication with families after new settlers moved to Oklahoma.
“I'm excited about the very interactive elements of this display,” Museum Manager, Stephanie Hixon said. “Visitors can use a typewriter, practice proper handwriting styles, and have the chance to read and dissect letters written to and from Norman residents. We wanted our summer exhibit to be kid-friendly with lots of interactive elements, but of course, all ages are welcome to participate.”
Regular museum hours are Tuesday-Saturday from 11-12 and 1-4. Guided tours are available at 11, 1, and 3, but guided tours are available at any time during opening hours. Admission is free to visit.
