Sand Springs Cultural & Historical Museum

MuseumThe Sand Springs Cultural and Historical Museum is located in the historic Page Memorial Library Building. The building is an excellent example of art deco architecture and was built to honor Charles Page in 1929. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in America in 1999.

The museum preserves the building and strives to connect the local area's past, present, and future through the preservation and promotion of cultural heritage and arts.

Sand Springs Home & Widow's Colony Exhibit

Widow's ColonySand Springs is Oklahoma's only planned industrial town. In 1907, entrepreneur and oilman, Charles Page, sent Salvation Army worker, Brinton F. Breeding, and a group of orphaned children and widows to his land west of Tulsa to begin a children's home and widow's colony. Building what some called a folly, Page developed a total community to provide for his children's home and widows' colony. The museum's permanent exhibit chronicles the story of Charles Page, the Sand Springs Home and Widow's colony, and life in an early 20th century industrial town.
