Oakley was founded by ranchers and Mormon immigrants in 1878.

Today it is on the National Register of Historic Places due to the collection of old stone and brick buildings in the area, which date back to 1883. This museum chronicles the history of the town and the surrounding area near City of Rocks.

Explore the rich heritage of the Oakley Valley with a stop at this museum. Learn about the Native Americans who lived in the area, battles between cattle and sheep ranchers, and the bustling business community of the early 1900s at the Oakley Valley Historical Museum.
