A Cowboy Christmas at the Sod House

Aline, Okla. — To celebrate the holidays the Sod House Museum is throwing a big, frontier-style Christmas Open House on Saturday, December 12, from 1–3 p.m.

Rick and Larry Simpson of Skeleton Creek Productions in Enid will be presenting a taste of the Cowboy Christmas that was celebrated by the early day pioneers. The Simpsons will visit with guests at the open house, present poetry, tell tall tales, and talk about how cowboys celebrated Christmas. Join us in stepping back in time to the excitement of a Cowboy Christmas.

The museum will be decorated to represent Christmas in different time periods, along with a splash of Cowboy Christmas decorations, while the Sod House itself will be decorated for a traditional 1890s Pioneer Christmas. Enjoy cookies and hot cider provided by the Friends of the Sod House.

The Christmas Open House is our "thank you" for your continued support in the museum. Operated by the Oklahoma Historical Society, the museum is located southeast of Aline on State Highway 8. The museum is open Tuesday–Saturday, 9 a.m.–5 p.m. For more information contact Director Renee Trindle at 580-463-2441 or sodhouse@okhistory.org.
