Each season brings something new to the Bartlesville Area History Museum’s Pioneer Gallery. This Fall, BAHM is proud to present: “Lawless Lands: Stories of the Wild, Wild Midwest.” On display beginning September 7th through November 30th, the exhibit takes visitors on a journey exploring the complicated and colorful past of what once was Lawless Lands here in the Midwest. The exhibit will feature various artifacts from Washington County’s very own outlaws & lawmen. In addition, youngsters and the “young at heart” may enjoy our lawmen & outlaws coloring station.

"This area was once a safe haven for outlaws, due to the lack of lawmen and all the great places for hideouts. The U.S. Deputy Marshals covered 7,400 square miles of territory, and over 65 deputy marshals were killed in the line of duty during Judge Parker’s tenure. Sometimes the lawmen would switch to being outlaws or outlaws would become lawmen. Some outlaws who roamed the area were Henry Starr, Henry Wells, Al Jennings, Al Spencer, and the Daltons," states Betty Keim, BAHM’s Education Coordinator.

The Museum is open Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. - 4 p.m. (closed on weekends and holidays) at 401 S. Johnstone Avenue, 5th Floor. Museum entry is free, but donations are always welcome. No reservation is necessary. If you have questions, you may reach Bartlesville Area History Museum staff at (918) 338-4290 or .
