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 email@example.com or follow Hunter’s Home on Facebook.
