A message from the Director

Jordan Boyd
Welcome to the official website of the Dobson Museum and Ottawa County Historical Society. It is my great pleasure to welcome you to our facility. Whether you are a resident of Ottawa County or live elsewhere and plan to travel through our county I encourage you to stop by for a visit to the museum and a tour of the historic Dobson Home on A Street SW in Miami.

The Ottawa County Historical Society has been collecting over 50 years and continues making new acquisitions to our collection. History is happening around us all the time and we work to share and preserve the rich history of Ottawa County with our patrons. We invite you to stroll through the courtyards on a beautiful afternoon, tour the museum or home, or you may be interested in having your next club meeting or class reunion held at the museum or Dobson Home. We welcome you to contact us about scheduling your next event or group tour.

If I can be of any assistance to you, please contact me. I look forward to your visit to the museum, home, and our programs. We strive to preserve the county's history and sharing the early stories from early pioneers through the decades of county milestones and achievements which has left quite a mark on our corner of the state. The museum focuses on all aspects of the county’s history including but not limited to Picher Mining Fields, Charles Banks Wilson’s career and artwork, Mickey Mantle’s childhood and career, Pioneer families, Route 66 making its way across the county, nine Native American tribes being headquartered in our county, B.F. Goodrich Tire Company having a plant here for forty years, and numerous artifacts which show the pastime of our county. We hope to see you in Miami soon!

Sincerely,

Director
