For November, the site will offer two cooking workshops, one of which will be live; a craft demonstration; a dedicated thread for members to suggest YouTube videos they would like to see this upcoming February; and previews of any videos, services or products the site will offer.

Through this Facebook group, staff will be able to offer programs and workshops to a nationwide audience while generating funds to support this important historic site. Hunter's Home is the only remaining antebellum plantation mansion in the state of Oklahoma. Formerly the home of Minerva Murrell, niece of Chief John Ross, it was the site of an 800-acre plantation in Cherokee Nation. Today, staff members are in the process of turning it back into a 19th-century farm, utilizing period tools and techniques to maintain the site in a manner similar to farms and plantations of the 1800s. Hunter’s Home features demonstrations and programs designed around 19th-century skills, crafts and trades to help visitors to connect to history in a concrete and lasting way.
Hunter’s Home is located at 19479 E. Murrell Home Road in Park Hill. Regular hours of operation are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information about this program, please call 918-456-2751, email firstname.lastname@example.org, find Hunter’s Home online at www.antiqueag.org or follow Hunter’s Home on Facebook.
