History Alive! on the Cherokee Strip is a living-history program that takes place regularly in the Humphrey Heritage Village on site at the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center. The Humphrey Heritage Village is a recreated historic village that allows us to tell the history of the late-19th and early-20th century northwestern Oklahoma in an engaging way. History Alive! on the Cherokee Strip helps the visitor “step back in time,” creating unique, interactive, living history experiences as they tour the Humphrey Heritage Village.
On the first and third Saturday of each month, the historic buildings in the Village come alive with living-history reenactors, who are tending their shops, working their trades, doing chores in the Glidewell House, or socializing at the Village Church. Visitors can learn about different skills and trades of the time, or file a land claim in the Land Office. And, of course, the Turkey Creek Schoolhouse is always in session!
