Salute to Veterans Memorial dedication
Huey Helicopter restored
The Oklahoma Heartland of America Museum
The Heartland of America Museum opened on June 12, 2007. Here, visitors can see - up close and personal - many artifacts from the late 1800s through the 1950s as they walk through the 32 major historical exhibits and nearly 40 aisle cabinet exhibits. A new Salute to Veterans memorial is in progress that will feature a restored Vietnam era Huey helicopter on display. Please consider a donation to this project. To date we have spent over $20,000 to restore this Huey flown by the Oklahoma National Guard in Vietnam.

The 12,000 square foot building is located on the southeast edge of Weatherford, Oklahoma and is readily visible from Interstate 40 between exits 82 and 84.
