This is a very well-preserved site, and could be an interesting attraction -- with some personality. Upon entering on a Saturday, when we were the only visitors on the premises, we were given a brochure and sent on a self-guided tour. The house is interesting, but a personable guide could have brought the site to life. Instead, it was a tour of an old house once occupied by a largely unknown individual. Disappointing.
Beautiful furnished home! So many descriptions for different items or pictures of the family who lived here. Outside is a log home, spring house and other structures you can tour.
杏彩彩票投注I visited with two friends one one of our "Exploring Oklahoma" day trips. After lunch at Vidalia's, we decided to visit this home. What a pleasurable afternoon we had. Upon arrival at the main house, we were met by its docent, a student at the local university. She explained the history of the house and its family and showed us several rooms. We explored the rest of the house by ourselves and then returned to talk with the docent. We asked why the only cooking apparatus involved a fireplace when the family had obviously enough money for a coal or wood cook stove. The docent explained that house construction began in the 1840s before cook stoves were available in that area.After leaving the main house, we visited a log cabin on the property. This would have been a typical dwelling for an average Cherokee family. The docent here was another university student. He provided information about Cherokee life foe the common man of the 1800s.
