Conner Vogel Helping With
Morrow Home Place Smokehouse Project

Eagle Scout Conner Vogel will be refurbishing the original Smokehouse at The Morrow Home Place national historic site

On Oct. 13th Cannon Vogel along with other scouts from Troop 93 will be working on location at The Morrow Home Place, Owasso/Collinsville, just off 126th St and Hwy 169. The home is white with a green roof built in the Kansas T style. The smokehouse is located at the back of the home. Cannon Vogel's Eagle Project is the restoration of the original smokehouse.

Young men from the troop will be cleaning, prepping, painting and re-roofing the smokehouse during the month of October.

"Cannon has organized the work force and raised most of the money to refurbish the smokehouse," says Scoutmaster Albert Kemp. "Many folks have donated materials and supplies," said Cannon. "I'd really like to say thanks to Clayton Garner from Mill Creek, Owasso for donating all the lumber needed to replace missing and rotten boards." "I would also like to thank Wade Dubler from the Owasso Sherwin Williams store for donating all the paint for the project." Cannon is still looking for a donor/ donors to help with the purchase of the wooden shingles for the roof. The smokehouse has always had wooden shingles so it would be nice to restore it to its original apperance.

The Morrow Home Place was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in April, 2011, and Troop 93 began to volunteer shortly thereafter. "I drove by the old house all the time," said Corey Bolger, "but never knew anything about the history. It has been fun to find out all the background." Bolger created a location on the site for the placement of the historic market. Tyler Cox, another Scout working toward the Eagle designation, has determined the location and original size of the family's garden. "We had to get a fence up first before we could begin planting," says Cox "and now we can plant the garden as it looked orginally."

The Troop is looking for a group of gardners or volunteers to help them plant, work and maintain the garden. "I would really like for some group to come plant and then sell the produce, pumpkins, or whatever they grow," said Dr. Kathleen Morrow, granddaughter of Joe F. (Fagan) and Lucile Ellingwood Morrow, second owners and long-time residents of the property. "I would like for the garden to be a community gardent or a garden that will benefit others," she continues.

Cannon Vogel is honored to be a part of the restoration of the Morrow Home Place. This is a wonderful asset to our community. "It feels very gratifying to preserve a part of our history." said Vogel.
