Miami museum honoring impact of Fullerton family

Updated:

A unique part of Miami, Oklahoma history is being showcased, after an opening ceremony Sunday. It's about three generations of the Fullerton family.

In the 1920's, the Fullerton family ranked among the most successful Black Angus breeders in the United States. Special Auctions brought buyers from all over the world to purchase Aberdeen Angus stock at record prices.

But museum workers say that's not all the family contributed.

"We think it is important to remember what the Fullerton family has done for our community. There were several lawyers that came from that family, two of which were judges, both county and district judge levels, and just numerous descendants that were important to the making of Ottawa County and Miami to what it is today," said Larry Roberts with the Ottawa County Historical Society.

The Dobson Museum is on "A" Street southwest. It's open Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday afternoons from 1 to 4.
