Wednesday, June 4, 2021 - Members of the Sequoyah County Historical Society are getting back into the swing of things after the COVID-19 pandemic forced them to shut their doors for the past 18 months.

The Historical Society will have its annual picnic at 6 p.m. Thursday, June 17, near the dam at Sallisaw Creek Park. Those who attend are asked to bring a covered dish and a friend for an evening of food and fellowship.
The museum's regular meetings are planned for Sunday, Aug. 22, when Mildred Taylor will present the history of Old Highway 17, and Sunday, Nov. 21, when Mary Adair will present a movie of Cherokee Nation families in Sequoyah County. Meetings are at 2 p.m. and the public is welcome to attend. The museum is at 200 E. Creek in Sallisaw and it is open to the public for visits and tours on Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to noon.
