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. « less

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

I officiated a wedding at Harn Homestead for my niece in October. The grounds were beautiful. There were plenty of walking paths for guests. The ceremony took place at the gazebo that worked great for us. There was power for the sound system we brought and plenty of room to set up as many chairs as you'd like. The bride... More

stoped in between calls and thought it was a nice place to soak up history, my family was in this land rush and most were Union soldiers , the1889er gives you a bit of the feeling that those who walked across America after a terrible fight between the North and the South.
