Americans come together at the crossroads.  They invest in places and build their futures where their paths cross.  Small towns became centers of commerce, trade, local politics, and culture.  For some, the crossroads affirmed a new life in a new place. For others, the crossroads meant hard work and hard times.

What is the future of rural America?  How does “rural” affect American identity?  How do the ingenuity and determination of rural Oklahomans contribute to our state’s success?  

Plan to visit the Crossroads exhibit at a location near you and watch for local programming that celebrates Oklahoma’s rural communities!

Crossroads: Change in Rural America is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and State Humanities Councils nationwide.  Crossroads has been made possible in Oklahoma by Oklahoma Humanities.  Support for Museum on Main Street has been provided by the United States Congress.


Museum on Main Street is made possible in Oklahoma by our generous partners:
