Event Details

This spring, summer, and fall, six small towns in Oklahoma will explore and reflect on the responsibilities of citizenship when they host Voices and Votes: Democracy in America, a traveling exhibit from the Smithsonian’s Museum on Main Steet (MoMS) program. Running for six weeks at each site, the exhibit opens at the Nowata Historical Society & Museum and will then travel to the Bristow Train Depot & Museum, Anadarko Community Library, Cheyenne-Roger Mills County Chamber of Commerce and Tourism, the Al Harris Library at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford, and finally the Bethany Library.

On April 13, 2024, join the Nowata Historical Society & Museum as they open the Voices and Votes tour at 10:00 AM with a ribbon-cutting and mayoral proclamation followed by ongoing voter registration, films about democracy and voting, and even chances to meet Uncle Sam and Lady Liberty. On Sunday afternoon, April 14, enjoy a special hour long musical concert by the Nowata Community Choir.
