Chickasaw Nation News

From underneath the First Lutheran Church in downtown Oklahoma City, a century chest has been revealed. Inside were items wrapped and catalogued in beautiful handwriting. Now in the hands of curators, the items capture what life was like 100 years ago. In 1913, the century chest was a project led by Virginia Sohlberg, in an effort to pay for the church’s organ. The organ still stands at the church today, as a symbol of hard work and dedication on behalf of Sohlberg’s efforts. Looking back, we can learn from the treasures of long ago.
