Welcome to the Oklahoma Centennial Farm Families Oral History Project!
Farms have and continue to play an important role in Oklahoma history beginning even before the Land Runs. Over 1000 farms have been designated as Oklahoma Centennial Farms and Ranches, meaning the farm has been owned and operated by the same family for at least 100 years. This ongoing oral history project aims to spotlight these farm families who remain connected to the land and to document part of the agricultural history of the state.
This website includes transcripts, audio, and photographs collected as a result of interview efforts. The Oklahoma Oral History Research Program at the OSU Library invites you to explore this website and meet the families of early farm pioneers as they continue to care for the land they proudly call home.
Check back often as new interviews are added!
