Antique Agriculture Festival, Murrell Home
October 7, 2016–October 9, 2016
The George M. Murrell Home Historic Site, located just south of Tahlequah, will host first annual Antique Agriculture Festival October 7-9, 2016. The festival will focus on nineteenth-century agricultural practices and will feature activities for the whole family.
The three-day event will include ongoing living history demonstrations, as well as entertainment, shopping, and food vendors. The Murrell Home, built in 1845, is the last remaining nineteenth-century plantation in Oklahoma.
“The Antique Agriculture Festival is a showplace for an agricultural heritage that needs to be saved,” said Site Director David Fowler. “The festival will focus on the end of the growing season. We’ll have harvesting and food preparation activities needed to sustain a plantation.”
Visitors are invited to watch demonstrations and participate in hands-on activities exploring a variety of topics, including foodways, domestic skills, trades, animal husbandry, and farming. “All of the activities will be performed in the nineteenth-century manner,” said Fowler.
