Determination July 15th For Eligibility To Try For National Register of
"rare local example of a first generation, settlement era farm house"
know it has been years since our folks passed away and I started the historical
project on our family farm. . . . and you probably thought I had died
and gone away as well. . . . .But. . . .
On Thursday, July 15th, I will actually be sitting before the Review Board of the Oklahoma Historical Society at which time the determination will be made to designate the Morrow Home Place a state historical site!
I didn't think the time would EVER arrive!
From that point, the historical staff is encouraging me to move forward for registry on the National Historic Places.
So. . . after years of work and effort from MANY folks, my hope is that we are going to be one step closer to providing a lovely little "spot of history" for the folks of Tulsa County. With approximately 3000 elementary school children within walking distance to the site, it is my hope that we can provide many happy hours of memories along with a few educational snip-its for future generations.
Just wanted to you to share in the excitement and thank EACH of your for your continued support and encouragement!
