Har-Ber Village, Grove, Oklahoma two postings today.

Where are we today ?


        We are having a perfect warm sunny day and our plan is to visit Har Ber Village and Museum in Grove Oklahoma with our friends Emile and Monique. This is our third visit here but it is constantly changing and improving.
         This museum was built as a gift to the public from Bernice and Harvey Jones of JTL (Jones Truck Lines) on Sept. 20th 1968 and is still growing today.
        We chose today as it was nice weather and the last day of Pioneer Days. A great time we had with live demonstrations, and some music and lots of interesting period costume people here.
        We walked the grounds for about three hours very hilly a good exercise for the day.

checkers anyone ?
        There is so much to see actually 102 buildings with endless displays of collections of all kinds.
        Now this was Sister Elizabeth wanting to deworm everybody here today at the Drug Store promoting her Worm Destroyer. We listened to her interesting sales pitch and were given the cure so that we would not contaminate anyone else here.

  3. What a cool day at Pioneer Days. It looks like it would take several visits to see everything. I love to watch reenactments. I am not sure I would have done very well back then.
