Welcome to the Putnam City Schools Museum website!
Donation to the Museum through PayPal from this website and/or donate for yearbooks (add $6.00 for yearbook postage if mailed).
The Putnam City Schools Museum was created to showcase all of the schools in the Putnam City School District. There are yearbooks and other items from all different schools in it now. The museum is needing more items donated to the museum from all the schools. The Putnam City Consolidated #1 school was the root of all the Putnam City School's family tree which we all belong to.
Everyone's help is needed to maintain and enrich our museum. Volunteers do all of the work but donations are needed for utilities and upkeep, as well as buying and building displays, etc. All of the articles and items that have been donated are much appreciated and the museum could not exist without them.
To protect and display them properly, monetary donations are also needed. Read how the museum originated. HERE
Donations to the Museum can be made by sending them to the Putnam City Schools Museum or paying online with the PayPal link on this page. Please make your check out to the Putnam City Schools Museum. This donation will be tax deductible. Send it to Putnam City Schools Museum, P.O. Box 561, Bethany, OK 73008. The museum is open on the second and fourth Saturday of each month, from 10 am to 2 pm.

the New Year rolled in, the Putnam City Schools Museum extended its hours of
operation. Museum officials said the museum will now open from 10 a.m. until 2
p.m. each Saturday. The museum is located at 4101 N. Grove Avenue, and displays
historic artifacts and memorabilia of the Putnam City school district which
covers much of the northwest Oklahoma City area.
to museum officials, the collections contain materials dating back to the
formation of the school district which was created nearly a century ago from
four small rural schools in the area. The building houses several thousand
items which have been donated by the school system and by former graduates,
teachers and patrons of the district. Members of the public are encouraged to
visit the museum and browse through the displays. “We are certain there are
items that hold special attraction for every student who attended the various
schools in the Putnam City district,” said Sheron Folsom Rodgers, an officer of
the museum committee and 1964 graduate of Putnam City High School.
