Muskogee County has had several newspapers. The current newspaper is The Muskogee Daily Phoenix established in 1888. It was built on the site of the old Indian Journal, which burned to the ground. In 1972, the newspaper became the first paper to convert from hot type to computers and offset press. At the time it was one of the most modern newspapers in the world. You can access the Muskogee Daily Phoenix website here.

The Oklahoma Historical Society has a Newspaper Archives that includes a list of newspapers that were published at one time or another in Muskogee county. Please bear in mind that just because a newspaper is listed doesn't mean the Society has copies. They do provide a research service.

The Muskogee Public Library Grant Foreman Room has many of the old Muskogee newspaper microfilm. There are indexes but they are not complete for all years.

Linda Haas-Davenport has abstracted genealogical information from some of the Muskgogee County newspapers. Click here for an index.
