Lee P. Brown, born in Wewoka in 1937, was the first African- American elected as mayor of Houston, TX.
Using funds from the 2013 April Shower, the Museum completed phase 1 of our long awaited landscaping project in late January. Phase one included the installation of a sprinkler system and stone-lined flower beds with an assortment of Oklahoma-friendly plants along the front of the building.
Phase 2 will include landscaping along Wewoka Avenue, in front of our rock wall, and down the north side of the building. We hope to begin phase 2 this spring.
