PERRY, Okla. — Join the Cherokee Strip Museum in Perry for its annual Christmas Tea on Sunday, December 11, from 1:30 to 4 p.m. This year’s theme will be “Country Christmas with a Victorian Twist.” This event coincides with the Tour of Homes in Perry, a time when the museum opens its doors to the public.

Participants will also be able to tour the Cherokee Strip Museum to explore the remarkable history of the people and events of the Cherokee Outlet.
This event is free to the general public, and the Cherokee Strip Museum gift shop will be open for a bit of holiday shopping.
