The Skiatook Museum, which is referred to as the ?Gateway to the Osage,? serves as a gateway to the past through time as it moves forward to a rich and prosperous future.

It was established by the help of people who were able to keep mementos, pictures, scrapbooks, artifacts, and letters. Among them are C. H. Cleveland and Mrs. G. B. Epperson.

Aiming to preserve the history of Skiatook, the Museum was established in April, 1976. After 5 location transfers, the Museum acquired its permanent home, which is the residence of pioneer doctor W. G. Phillips. The house, which was built in 1912, also contained his office. With support from the Oklahoma Historical Society, the house was refurbished and display areas were put up.

Today, the Museum is able to serve historians and students who are interested in their family tree and in the city?s history by giving them access to* personal papers, photographs, documents, and newspapers.
