Christmas and Southern Gospel Music at the Sod House

Celebrate Christmas the pioneer way at the Sod House Museum’s Christmas Open House on Saturday, December 15, from 1 to 3 p.m. Share in the festivities with songs, traditional decorations and treats provided by the Friends of the Sod House. Gary Booze of Aline will share Christmas and Southern Gospel music during the event.

Southern Gospel music has been around for many years, it began as a blend of early mountain music, cowboy music and music from plantations of the Deep South. These songs were written to express personal or communal faith and to relate biblical teachings to everyday life.

The museum will be decorated for Christmas, while the Sod House itself will be decorated for a traditional 1890s pioneer Christmas. Enjoy cookies and hot cider provided by the Friends of the Sod House. The Friends also sponsor a drawing for a quilt during the Open House.

The Christmas Open House is the museum’s “thank you” to the community for its continued support of the museum. The Sod House Museum is located southeast of Aline on State Highway 8 and open Tuesday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information contact Director Renee Trindle at 580-463-2441 or [email protected].

The Sod House Museum is a division of the Oklahoma Historical Society. The mission of the Oklahoma Historical Society is to collect, preserve and share the history and culture of the state of Oklahoma.

Sod House Museum to Feature Art Exhibition by Warren Little

The Sod House Museum, will feature a special exhibit of art and photography by Warren Little during the month of September. The exhibit will feature 25 pieces of art and photography. On Saturday, September 22, at 10 a.m. Little will be at the museum to give an overview of his drawings and the techniques he uses.

Little discovered he had a knack for drawing people when he was a young boy growing up in Winchester, Okla. Little was one of four students at the Winchester School with all boys and a male teacher. He loved to draw instead of study. Little raised a family, cattle and wheat, then retired after 42 years of work. His love for art now continues through his drawings, paintings and photography.

Little gave away many of his drawings, especially napkin drawings of old men in restaurants. These drawings can be found in restaurants in Kansas and Oklahoma, as well as on display in homes. One drawing found its way into an obituary. After visiting the Sod House Museum, Little did a drawing of Marshal McCully, the builder of the sod house, and presented it to the museum. The exhibit will feature a variety of drawings and photography. Visit the museum during September to enjoy this beautiful exhibit.

Crocheted Rag Rug Workshop at the Sod House Museum

Nancy Hada of Cherokee, Okla., will present a Rag Rug workshop at the Sod House Museum on Saturday, August 18th, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 pm.

Rag rugs have been a part of the pioneer history around the later part of the 18th century. The concept for rag rugs came to the United Sates by way of European immigrants. When making these rugs, women would use strips of old clothes and worn out blankets as a resourceful way to add warmth and decor to their homes.

Because of the continued popularity of rag rugs, Nancy will be teaching this technique at the museum. Long strips of fabric are still used, but todays rugs are often very colorful and women can use new or old fabric in making the rugs, as long as the same type fabric is used throughout the rug. Once the technique is learned participants can make any shape of rug and even make bowels. The rag rugs are completely reversible and wear moderately well.

Participants need to preregister by August 3rd for this workshop due to limited space at the museum. Once registered, participants will receive a list of supplies needed for the workshop.

The Sod House Museum is open Tuesday–Saturday, 9 a.m.–5 p.m., and is located southeast of Aline on State Highway 8. For more information contact Director Renee Trindle at 580-463-2441 or [email protected]
