A Christmas Carol

To see ‘A Christmas Carol’ at Harn Homestead was a special time. It was live outdoors and was fantastic. As a member of the audience it felt as though we were involved.
Highly recommend going this year as it may be the last outside rendition. Bundle up.

Very lovely place

Very lovely place to step back into time! I remember coming here as a child on a field trip and now as an adult with my homeschooled children. Very friendly staff. Knowledgeable on their history of the Harn family and the plantation. Recommend this for anyone.

Beautiful venue

Beautiful venue in the heart of OKC! Very picturesque and rustic. We attended my brother in law’s memorial here and it was the perfect place to have a celebration of life party.

Perfect wedding

Sons wedding is still being talked about as to just how beautiful the surroundings made for a picture perfect wedding. Nestled amongst the hustle of downtown OKC is a treasure of the past.

To our dear friends and followers. For the past 16 years it has been my privilege to act in the roles of Intern, Docent, Collections Manager, Education Director, and ultimately, Executive Director. Whether I have taught you or your children in one of our historic buildings, taken you on a Harn House tour, submitted a grant to your foundation, or welcomed you happily to our Homestead Social; I have done all of it in support of the Harn Homestead and its mission "to preserve the historic homestead and to educate the public about the territorial years of Oklahoma". And I hope that's what I have shared with each of you.

Today, I taught that one-room Schoolhouse for one last time, and next Thursday will be my last day at the Harn Homestead. This was my first job after several years of staying home with my children, and it was wonderful to see them grow up on this property! I will be moving on to a new position in my home community of Norman. I know I will enjoy the short commute, but how I will miss being here everyday and sharing William and Alice Harn's story with all of you! I know that I leave this place in the capable hands of Mr. David, Miss Kelly, and Miss Diane. And I am grateful.

With loving thanks,
