Miss Nellie's Birthday

Sunday, April 26th Postponed, further details coming soon!
Come Celebrate Miss Nellie Dobson's 130th Birthday with the Ottawa County Historical Society.

An open house will be held on Sunday, April 26th from 1-4 pm at the Dobson Memorial Center at 110 A SW.

There have been updated and new displays inside the museum and we look forward to seeing our members and the community helping honor Miss Nellie Dobson who loved Ottawa County and wanted to see our history preserved for future generations.

She was born in 1885 in Kentucky and passed away in 1968 in Miami, Oklahoma at the age of 83. Miss Dobson wanted her home to be left to house Ottawa County History and allow the Ottawa County Historical Society and Miami Garden Club a place to meet and preserve her estate in Miami.
