The future of Oklahoma history started before Oklahoma was a state. This month marks the 130th birthday of the Oklahoma Historical Society, which began in 1893 at the behest of the Territorial Press Association. Newspaper editor William P. Campbell knew of an effort in Kansas to save newspapers as a historical record. The other newspaper editors in attendance agreed that the best people at the time to document the monumental changes occurring around them were the ones writing the news.

In 2005, more than a hundred years after it began, the Oklahoma Historical Society moved into the aptly named Oklahoma History Center, which houses its offices as well as artifacts and exhibits from the state.

Now located in Oklahoma City, in what city was the Oklahoma Historical Society founded?
