AAA Editor Notes

Sod House is on SR 8, 5.5 mi. n. of US 412. Marshal McCully made the Cherokee Outlet run of 1893, staking his claim south of Aline. He built his two-room sod home with a half-acre of thick buffalo grass sod and used alkali clay to plaster the inside walls. It was completed in 1894 and a wood floor was added in 1895. The museum encloses the original sod house, along with displays of artifacts, photographs and a root cellar. An additional building has horse-drawn equipment and period farm implements. Time: Allow 30 minutes minimum.
