The Sod House Museum

The surprising highlight of the trip for all of us seemed to be the Sod House Museum in Aline, OK. It was built in 1894 by Marshal McCully. It is the last standing original sod house built by an actual homesteader in Oklahoma. It now has a building completely around it to preserve it for the ages. In 1964, each of the four corners were rebuilt, due to severe deterioration. However, the rest of the house is original.
