The Bartlesville Area History Museum is excited to announce our, “Third Thursday Lunch and Learn” event for October will feature guest speaker, photographer and author, Richard Gorremans.

Join us as we celebrate the release of Richards book “Ghost Towns In Oklahoma” with a short presentation and book signing! Guests are encouraged to bring their own lunch or enjoy light refreshments provided by BAHM while hearing tales of how some of our state’s, ghost towns came to be, especially in Washington County.
