Catoosa’s Historical Museum

Open Tuesday & Friday 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Catoosa’s Historical Society chose the design of the train depot for its new building since the railroad played a big, important part in Catoosa’s history. The depot houses several old pictures and artifacts relating to Catoosa’s history, such as a mailbox that was used when mail was delivered on horseback. Other interesting artifacts include a train depot log book that dates back to 1897; a check from the Farmers and Merchants Bank dated 1907; a saddle; and many old pictures of Catoosa and its citizens.
Burlington Northern Railroad donated a caboose to the Historical Society. The renovated caboose is on the north side of the depot. A walkway made of commemorative bricks connect the caboose to the depot. The caboose holds railroad memorabilia.
The Historical Society meets the fourth Monday of each month at 5:30 p.m. at the depot. For more information regarding the Historical Society, call 918-266-3296, or write to the Catoosa Historical Society at P.O. Box 738, Catoosa, OK 74015.
