If you love Poteau’s history, check out the Member’s Only section of this site. In the member’s section, you’ll find rare photos of Poteau, Heavener, Wister, and the surrounding areas, as well as stories, documents, and maps of the region.
These items have been collected from a wide variety of sources for several years and are being compiled here for people to enjoy. Many of these documents have been purchased for our books, The Birth of Poteau and Stories of the Mountain Gateway, however, with such a vast amount of material, there is no way we could ever compile all of the photos and documents into even a series of books.
For $10 a month, you’ll gain access to new material monthly. The money raised through our membership section goes to help support this site as well as other endeavors in the region, including acquiring more material for further historical research, area improvement projects, and so on. Additionally, you’ll gain access to all of our past magazines, as well as special offers on future products.
Here are some of the things that you can expect from our membership section:
- Rare photos
- “In their own words” stories
- In-depth articles on the history of our area
- Detailed maps showing area towns and regions going back as far as the mid-1800s
