graders from Collinsville's Herald Elementary took a short hike Wednesday May
16th from their classrooms to the Morrow Home Place (SE of the Southfork Housing
Addition) on 126 St. N. Many wore clothing similar to early Oklahomans.
Collinsville Garden Club had been working to prepare the garden area at the
Morrow Home Place for some hands-on gardening by the students but all the recent
rains left it too muddy for the day. The garden was explained and the students
may visit again later to see the crops.
Elementary 3rd graders posed in several groups on the front porch of the home
where Lucile Ellingwood-Morrow and her family lived and farmed since near
Oklahoma statehood time. A portion of the farm and the home are being restored
by Kathleen Morrow (grand-daughter of Lucile).
