3rd Saturday Living History Programs on Tap at Murrell HomeThe George M. Murrell Home Historic Site in Park Hill announces a monthly living history program. The 1845 Cherokee plantation home will host a different historical demonstration or activity every third Saturday of the month from 1:00-4:00pm.
Museum visitors on these days will be able to see period-dressed interpreters performing tasks in a living history capacity. Guests can expect to see a variety of demonstrations and talk to historians, while participating in some of the activities. Topics will cover all aspects of Cherokee plantation life, from traditional crafts, cooking and gardening to animal demonstrations, building trades and cultural activities.
A different activity will take place each month, often related to seasonal activities happening on the plantation grounds. In May, interpreters will be demonstrating some of the different chores people did in the 1800s.
The living history program is geared for families and visitors of all ages. Admission to the programs is free, and reservations are not needed. The Murrell Home is located three miles south of Tahlequah at 19479 E. Murrell Home Rd., Park Hill, OK 74451.
