HAR-BER VILLAGE MUSEUM is a pioneer-era village and history museum complete with The Country Store gift shop, The Weaver at Har-Ber Village retail shop and Visitor Center. The Village is located on the shores of Grand Lake o’ the Cherokees. During self-guided tours, visitors experience the area’s history and ecology, and view antiques, collectibles and reproductions in exhibitions representing the mid-1800s to the early 1900s in the local four-state region (Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas).
Several of the Village’s HISTORIC BUILDINGS were relocated to the grounds, including a schoolhouse, jail and 16 log cabins. Other log structures were built to house collections and are typical for the 19th Century—a courthouse, a bank, a stagecoach inn and a church built with bricks hand-made before the Civil War. Other replicated buildings include a mercantile, jail and hanging gallows, a doctor’s and a dentist’s office, print shop, post office, drug store and more.
Recently EXHIBITS have been renovated and/or relocated, HANDS-ON ACTIVITY STATIONSadded (Kid’s Cabin, Nursery, School, Jail, Saloon), and frequent WORKSHOPS, events and historic craft and trade demonstrations have become a part of Har-Ber Village’s offerings (blacksmith DEMONSTRATIONS, spinning and weaving demonstrations and workshops).
Annual SPECIAL EVENTS include Civil War Day, Farm and Agriculture Day, Cherokee Heritage Day, Independence Day Celebration, Ecology and Environment Day, Pelican Fest Free Day, Historical Haunted Halloween, Pioneer Day and Christmas on Main Street.
