Take a step back in northwest Oklahoma history by visiting the Cherokee Strip Museum. The Museum has 40 rooms full of displays, including a historical display of the Cherokee Strip, President Abraham Lincoln pictures, a collection of flags, soldier’s uniforms, antiques, dolls, toys, furniture, a period general store and kitchen, miniature trains, and an authentic covered wagon. Visit the military wing with the P.O.W. Camp rooms where you will find artifacts made by the Nazi German prisoners, held in Alva during World War II.
An adjacent annex houses small farm machinery. Also on Museum grounds, the Union Center school District 67. The one-room schoolhouse sits just south of the main museum. It stands as a representative of the many rural schools that once dotted the prairie.
