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.

Really fascinating story about the Harn Homestead, next door to the "Capitol" of Oklahoma buildings, and next door to the area where all the oil wells were drilled on the Capitol grounds (some still standing) in the twenties. Some of the buildings are re-built or replicas, but it does not take away from the history.

I set out to tour this bright & early on a Monday morning. I was surprised at how dilapidated the house was. The grounds were interesting, & had a small garden, a barn, a newer event barn, an old schoolhouse (not open on this day), a rustic cabin & a rustic home for a family member to live in, &... More

Traveled from Georgia to Oklahoma City because my husband and I love history. After having read the history of Harn Homestead, we were eager for our visit. Arrived at 2PM on a cloudy, windy, rain any time Monday afternoon to find we were the only visitors. When we entered the visitors center a woman looked up and asked, "what do... More

I was recommended to visit by a lovely gentleman at one the rest stop tourist offices. It was a good tip. This is about a minute from the Capitol building. It was the original homestead that donated the land to build the Capitol. As I visited on a Saturday when a private event was setting up I was only able... More

Thank you so much for stopping by! As you noted, due to private events on the property on the weekends; our hours of operation are Monday-Friday. We hope you make it back to Oklahoma City again and get a chance to visit when we are open. More

I have lived here 59 years & did not know this was here. What a jewel in the middle of the city. You walk through the gates & it is like you have gone to 1889.. worth a stop & the money

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

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
