Historic Jefferson Highway in Oklahoma

Few roads in Oklahoma can claim as much history as Highway 69 which reaches back in time to the days when the Osage were dominant in the region.  It has gone by many names in its two hundred years or more of existence – the Osage Trace, the Texas Road, the Military Road, the East Shawnee Cattle Trail, and the Jefferson Highway.  Author and historian Jonita Mullis will present an author’s review of her book The Jefferson Highway in Oklahoma: The Historic Osage Trace (American Heritage, 2016) which recalls some of Oklahoma’s most important history, celebrates some of its most fascinating characters, and shares the many reasons why this road was, and still is, important in Oklahoma history. Jonita Mullins has written 14 books, both fiction and non-fiction, and more than 800 articles focused on Oklahoma history.  She serves on the board of Founder’s Place Historical District in Muskogee, where she resides, and on the Oklahoma Historical Society Board of Directors.  Books will be available for purchase and signing for $20 (cash or check).
