The State Capital Publishing Museum is housed in the historic State Capital Publishing Company building that was constructed in 1902. The Museum?s collection boasts of original furnishings and printing equipment. It includes the State Capital Company history, printing technology, as well as other aspects of life that were from the territorial and early statehood era.

Frank Hilton Greer, the founder of the State Capital Company, built a business that has one of the biggest printing operations in the southwest and the 3 most widely circulated Oklahoma newspapers. As it became more influential, Greer also became one of the founders of the Oklahoma Press Association. He also purchased the 1st linotype machine in the state.

In 1902, the building was damaged in fire. Since Greer was already planning for a much larger printing operation, the building was redesigned by famous architect Joseph Foucart.
