in doing so provise for the pleasure and education of current and
Krebs Heritage Museum is dedicated to preserving the physical
legacy and the experiences of the immigrants, Native Americans, and
others that developed the area known as Krebs and the surrounding towns
which all owe their existance, in great part to the development of the
coal industry in the last quarter of the 19th century.
Our goal is to collect and display as much of the social, economic,
and technical events which shaped the lives of those living in the community
and the Southeastern region of Indian Territory and later Oklahoma as

By the way, that's Rosso, our resident coal miner sitting by the
front door. He's still waiting for the streetcar to come by and take
him to work in the mines as it did for decades in the last century. Drop
in when you're in the area and pay him a visit.
