Legacy Keepers R Us: Who We Are

Legacy Keepers R Us was started in 1991 by ShIronbutterfly Thomas Ray. In 2013, joined by M. Artist McIntosh Taylor and Collotta Cade-Bailey to preserve the legacy/history of Elliott Park with a monument.

Over the past 30 years, many members of Legacy Keepers have dedicated countless hours to preserving various legacies with projects related to the Muskogee and Oklahoma history. We are dedicated to preserving history in an informative and entertaining format for the next generations to explore.

Notable people, places and events have been highlighted. African-Native American Tours blend history & folklore, Cemetery restorations, street signs named in honor of historic members of the Black community, cemetery markers, photos restored of historic legends, youth involved in every aspect, and more.

We are creating lasting archives to be housed at the 3 Rivers Museum, Muskogee's Regional History Center, Muskogee Public Library and the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center as searchable resources for future generations and history seekers.
