Okmulgee Black Hospital History

 

In 1922, Okmulgee's Black citizens secured $25,000 in donations

from clubs and leading community citizens

to construct the first "colored hospital"

opened in the State of Oklahoma.

The two-story, 18-room brick facility served

African-American citizens in the Okmulgee area from 1922 to 1956.

The building also served as a community center and office building.

The Okmulgee Black Hospital was listed

on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.

In the 1990s, the building was condemned and permanently closed

by the City of Okmulgee.
