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.

Didn't get to go in because they are only open Monday thru Friday and we travel 4 hours to see different sights and this was one we wanted to see but we can only do weekends. So disappointed

MLG5, Manager at Harn Homestead, responded to this review

We are sorry to hear you are disappointed. The museum serves as a private event venue on the weekends and due to previous issues with museum visitors disrupting those activities, we had no alternative but to restrict access to only those who have rented the property on Saturdays and Sundays. We explain this on our website, our FB page, and... More

Visited a couple of times with my children when they were in grade school. It is an old homestead from years ago which has been maintained and a wonderful opportunity for us to see how things were done back then. I highly recommend it for families or anyone wanting to see someplace interesting.

This out and indoor museum is a preserved homestead from the Land Run of 1889. Mr. Harn was a judge in the disputes over who was the rightful owner of land claims. This is also a working farm museum with a one room school house. You can rent the barn for your corporate or family events. Nice folks and a... More

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

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
