The Healdton Oil Museum stemmed out from the opening of the Healdton Oil field in 1913. This event initiated the establishment of Southern Oklahoma as a major petroleum-producing area. The field became the largest of 9 petroleum-producing fields in Carter County. By 1937, it had already produced 200 million barrels of oil, making it a vital production pool in Oklahoma.

The Museum houses artifacts and photographs that depict the story of oil development in Carter County. It also enables visitors to be enlightened about the early days of the oil boomtowns. These boomtowns were plagued by the lack of housing, poor sanitation, and regular meal service. By the 1920?s and 1930?s, Carter County?s oil rich started entering a state of depletion.
