Har-Ber Village Museum Part 1

Afton, Oklahoma            High 90 Low 73

It rained a good part of last night but had almost quit when we got up this morning.

We decided today would be the best day for us to go see Har-Ber Village in Grove. On the way I filled the truck for 2.339 per gallon for diesel. I didn’t think that was too bad.

Har-Ber Village was built by Harvey and Bernice Jones, the founders of Jones Truck Lines, is a 19th century village with over a hundred different displays. It seems that if it was collectable, it is there. There are collections of glass, dolls, farm machinery, and anything else you can imagine.

We got a lot of pictures of log cabins. There is a doctor’s office, a dentist, a drug store, an old post office, and even a bank. I can’t possibly put all the pictures on one post, so I will have to divide them up into some other posts.

Old Saloon.

There was a large Indian collection.

Stamps from the 1800's to about 1960.

Dentist's office.

Doctor's office.

Penny enjoyed lots of new smells.

The barber shop even had a pole in front.

The drug store soda fountain.

The bank.

We liked the large round safe.

The whole Village is on the shore of the Grand Lake O' the Cherokees.

Penny was good about walking everywhere. We had found out from their website that they were pet friendly.

Lots of log Cabins.

We totally enjoyed our over three hours there and could have stayed longer, but we got tired. The walk was over a mile up and down hills.

Thanks for visiting.
