Families have the opportunity to spend an afternoon at Turkey Creek School making crafts with the schoolmarm and playing historic games. The living history activities offer a fun way to learn the history of the region and help develop a deeper appreciation for why and how tasks were accomplished in the early pioneering days of the Cherokee Strip. Spending time at Turkey Creek School allows kids to experience a typical school day in 1910.
One Saturday each month the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center will host living history activities for the whole family in Humphrey Heritage Village from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m.
Open Day at Turkey Creek School
