Overview

Kathy Dickson, Oklahoma Historical Society's Director of Museums and Historic Sites, describes her agency's  difficult decision to sell historically significant state-owned sites it can no longer afford to maintain. With OHS budgets slashed 40% over the past six years, the agency has been forced to change state law to allow these sales but has also negotiated sales agreements to sell historic properties to organizations that agree to pay fair market value and to maintain and preserve sites. In several cases new owners include tribes including The Chickasaw and Cherokee Nations.
