The Payne County Historical Society is proud to help preserve and share the history of Payne County, Oklahoma.  The Society has been publishing Historical Reviews since 1980. At the January 2023 Annual Meeting, members agreed to the Payne County Historical Society merging with the Stillwater History Museum at the Sheerar. PCHS is now a committee of the Stillwater Museum Association Board and will continue to produce The Review and collaborate with the museum to produce programs and exhibits. This website will cease to exist in July of this year.
