Historic home of William Fremont Harn who came to Oklahoma Territory as a Federal Agent to settle Land Run disputes in 1891. The Harn House was built in 1904 when he and Mrs. Alice Moores Harn decided to make Oklahoma Territory their permanent home. Since that time, other historic buildings from other locations have been added to the property. The mission of the Harn Homestead Museum is to preserve the historic homestead and educate the public about the territorial years of Oklahoma. The Harn Homestead Museum is proud to be a part of Adventure Road.

So, you're in the heart of Oklahoma City, just down from the Capitol Building, and you turn off into a car park. Walk through the gate, and you are thrown back in time. Historic homes, barns and other buildings, trees complete with birds signing, stuff for kids, and peaceful space. Nice gift shop too, plus the ever-present friendliness of Okies.

For some, history is only as good as those who are showing you around the grounds. There are a good many interesting historic artifacts on display, that are not fully described by the tour guides, and they should be. This old farmstead is a nice little oasis, in the middle of the hubub of the city, with close proximity to... More

Our grandson had his wedding here and was a wonderful venue. Beautiful grounds, nice old buildings and history of building. Lots of birds and trees.

See what the old homesteads and school houses would have been like! Walk around the grounds, have a picnic lunch. See old homes and the outhouse. You can just walk around, look, and imagine living 100 years ago.. Neat little place to visit!

There are only a few buildings on the property but we had a wonderful tour guide at the main house. He knew all about the Harn family and early Oklahoma history and really made this attraction worthwhile. I must say, if it wasn't for him, I would say don't waste your time.

If you like history, and learning how our ancestors lived, Harn Homestead is a great place to visit. They have so much there to see and experience. It is great for the whole family. Especially the kids. I was a parent sponsor for a school group that attended. The kids loved it. Especially the old school. The kids keep talking... More

Beautiful grounds surprisingly close to the capital building. The home seemed a bit dusty. Our guide was very knowledgeable.

I have volunteered at Harn Homestead a few times over the last three years during their annual Land Run Reenactment and have enjoyed the experience every time. Everyone on staff is passionate about what they do- and it shows! It is a special, hands on way for children (and adults!) to gain a deeper knowledge of our past.

The homestead is only open on weekends. I don't know how I missed that on the website, I guess I am used to a tourist sight being open on weekends or at least a Saturday. We saw the barn and house from the outside. It does look well tended, however it does back up to a housing track on the... More

I think what our visitor here meant is that we are only open as a museum on weekdays as opposed to weekends, as it says in the title, and that is true. During the weekends, we are used as a private rental venue. Most of these rentals are weddings and because they are primarily outdoor ceremonies, it is virtually impossible... More
