Garst Museum & The National Annie Oakley Center
The Garst Museum features The National Annie Oakley Center and the foremost collection dedicated to the life of sharp-shooter and Darke County native, Annie Oakley within its 35,000 sq. ft. space.
Annie Oakley was America’s first female superstar and a role model for today’s woman. Unlike Hollywood’s image of a western, rough and tumble tomboy, Annie was a true Victorian woman who loved lace, silver, beautiful furnishings, and elegant clothing and yet was blessed with physical athleticism. The newly updated National Annie Oakley Center at the Garst Museum features exhibits dedicated to her personal and professional life and her impact on modern popular culture.
The museum’s other major exhibits includes The Treaty of Green Ville and “Mad”Anthony Wayne, Tecumseh and Native Americans, Lowell Thomas, an extensive military collection, period American furnishings, county history and agricultural artifacts. The museum also offers a well-staffed genealogy research library and a unique store.
