Oklahoma Presbyterian College (also known as Oklahoma Presbyterian College for Girls) is a historic Presbyterian school at 601 N. 16th Street in Durant, Oklahoma. The site, including two contributing buildings, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.[1]

The main building is a three-story building, built during 1909-1910 of red brick with white stone trim. It is 50 by 160 feet (15 m × 49 m) in plan and served as a combination school and dormitory, and was built at cost of $100,000.[3]

The second building, built in 1918, is also three stories but is more modest, and is 32 by 80 feet (9.8 m × 24.4 m) in plan.[3]

In 1976 the two buildings served as headquarters and museum of the Red River Valley Historical Society.[3]

In 2018, a photo indicates that the main building, at least, is used by the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma.[4]
