About Our Fundraiser
We are in Phase 2 of building on the Bixby Historical Society grounds. Phase 1 was completed this summer with the revitalization of the Scale House. Phase 2 is Plummer’s Station.
Plummer’s Station was built in 1921, and this year marks its 100th anniversary. The station provided a vital service facility and gateway to the Albert Pike Highway which gave access to the Arkansas River bridge, which was the first vehicle traffic and longest bridge west of the Mississippi at that time. Martha Plummer Roberts donated the land to the Bixby Historical Society in 1983 and the Station was to serve as a source of revenue for the Society. In 2015, a storm blew through the town ripping parts of the metal tile roof. Completion of a new metal tile roof in 2018, was the start of the first component for the restoration of Plummer’s Station. In the spring of this year the Historical Society started the second restoration component which consists of re-tuck pointing the exterior brick, new windows, doors, and a new concrete slab under the portico. The final component of this renovation will be the expansion of the building to the north and restoration of the interior. The Historical Society plans to lease the renovated building to a business that will attract patrons and tourists daily to the downtown River District while enjoying the History of our area and traveling exhibits on the Historical Society grounds..
The Bixby Historical Society thanks you for your support.
