The Oklahoma Oil Museum in Seminole Oklahoma on 1800 West Wrangler Blvd., would like to let everyone know that they‘re having a fundraising Oilfield Auction this Friday, starting at 11:30 a.m. There will be lunch provided for those participating. We want to make sure that everyone has equal opportunity to benefit from this as well.  

The museum is a non-profit organization that depends on fundraisers and donations. If you would like to help or donate, please contact the director Renia Newell at okoil@att.net or call 405-382-1500.

The facility is an Oil Museum, mostly based off of the 1920’s on how the oil began in Seminole County. Seminole County was one of the biggest blooming areas back in the day, it was even considered for the State Capital. On our tours we give details about how some towns were developed and how some were so wild and brought in a famous U.S. Marshall to help patrol. It’s a different experience to hear the stories about how oil changed lives; it was a true Wild West then.

 Exhibits include a Sod House, Camp House, Wooden Drilling Rig, Newer Metal Drilling Rig, pictures of the history, tools, other older artifacts as well and new additions are being added as well, such as a Geology Room.  

The museum is also also having a judging contest on drilling rigs that have been welded by some schools with agriculture classes.

We are wanting the public to vote and come by to see what a wonderful job these young scholars have done, Newell said.

Here are some ideas of what will be auctioned off: Well servicing, Lodging, Transport, Backhoe, Pump Truck, Pump Purchase, Repair, Chemicals, Equipment, Rods, Pipe, Cattle Guard, and Miscellaneous Items as well.  You can go onto our webpage to see more about what is being up for auction at www.oklahomaoilmuseum.com
