Sod House Museum

Saves: 5
Check-ins: 5
Oklahoma's only remaining sod house is a glimpse into the lifestyles of the pioneers who settled in this region. Sod houses were common on prairie land, being built directly from blocks of the prairie grass that was so abundant. Because building materials such as brick, stone, or timber were not easily found on the prairie, the sod houses became an important part of the prairie pioneering life. This particular sod house was built in 1894, and has managed, with the help of the Oklahoma Historical Society, to withstand the sometimes severe weather patterns. Hours are from Tuesday through Saturday, with an admission price of $7 per person. See the website for updated hours and prices.
