Formed in 1999, the Mustang Historical Society is dedicated to researching, preserving and presenting the history of the Mustang area.It includes Mustang Township in the far southeastern corner of Canadian County, OK.
The Society, located at 470 West H-152 in downtown Mustang, houses a small museum, a meeting room, and an adjacent antique machinery yard. Members seek a new, expanded site to house a growing collection of museum showpieces.As fund raisers, the Society publishes and sells books, offers small items of historical interest, and accepts donations. Each fall the Society sponsors its Antique Critique. At that time Individuals are encouraged to bring valued items for a professional estimate of fair market value by noted appraiser Matt McNeil.
The Society participates in the Mustang Western Days celebration. At the booth are displays of antique items, history books and old town photographs. Occasionally the Society prepares a historical float for the annual Western Days Parade.The Society is an all-volunteer group.
