A Rich History Education Museums Visit Programs & Events Photographs Alumni Give to Historical Dwight
"Suitable for preservation as a perpetual shrine to the memory of men and women who carved a new life and a new state out of Indian Territory; as a significant and valuable fragment of history in a lusty young state, growing so rapidly it seldom looks back at its priceless heritage nor to its rapidly disappearing monuments."
Roy P. Stewart, The Daily Oklahoman, 1948
This quote speaks volumes and it implores us all to honor our heritage and those individuals who gave their all for the people of Oklahoma. The Native Americans, missionaries, and pioneers who graced this historic site all had a story and it is up to this generation to see that their story is told. How can we do this? Through preservation and tireless research.
Dwight Mission's history is two fold. We have the history of Dwight Mission itself and we also have the unique history of the site Dwight Mission relocated to in 1829, its present day location.
