This home is very unique in Oklahoma history. It belonged to the captain of the light horse that was the only law enforcement in the Choctaw Nation during Indian Territory times. The home was built in 1894 and the home was turned over to the historical society in 1967. The Society has restored the home and furnishings of the late 1800s.
The "Friends of Peter Conser Historic Site Society has taken on the project to restore the barn during 2006.
We offer a comprehensive story line on Northwest Oklahoma history in our semi-permanent exhibits, which were developed through Oklahoma Humanities Council planning and implementation matching grants. One of these, “Northwest Passages,” received a Certificate of Commendation from the American Association of State and Local History in 1987. In 1993, the Oklahoma Historical Society named the museum the state’s best local history museum.
