Previous Coverage:
Third 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.
The 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.
Herald 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).
