Exploring Muskogee

I have found a sweet place to stop and relax in Muskogee! It is called Harmony House –  Eatery and Bakery. The tables are covered with bright old fashioned tablecloths and the settings mix and match like the salt and pepper shakers. The proprietress has created a charming little hideaway in the front rooms of this fine old mansion house.

A corner cupboard displays china teapots. Large windows let sunlight in through white lace curtains. Can you believe this great huge front door? The windows were over sized also.

I ordered the Wednesday special which was Chicken Tetrazinni with a fresh delicious salad, hot rolls, and iced tea. There was a treat of four quarter cookies of different flavors arranged on a saucer at each plate so to tempt one to purchase a dozen from the bakery. A lady dining at the next table was served a strawberry cupcake that was a work of art. Even though the cookies I ate (oatmeal with raisin and walnuts) were delicious, I wished I had ordered a cupcake.
 
This is one of the dining rooms. A porch is being renovated and fitted for outdoor dining and breakfast will soon be added to the luncheon menu. A drive-in window will allow you to purchase bakery items. The stained glass bird art piece covered a large window.
 
 
The Harmony House eatery and Bakery is an
impressive white house with a columned porch and two majestic lions guarding the entrance. It is located at 
 208 S 7th St. (From Okmulgee street heading east, pass the library and turn on 7th and south a block). The phone number is 918-687-8653.
If you know me you know, I loved all the flowers best of it all.

Photography Classes

Okmulgee Homeschool students spent a week studying photography together. Some of the teachers taught about the history of cameras, careers in photography, digital photography, photo editing by computer, concepts for better photos, light in photos, etc.
Visiting speakers were child portrait photographer, Trinnica Jones, expert witness Ron Hollis who takes airplane photos for Covington Aircraft, and Larry Owens, sports  writer and photographer for Okmulgee Daily Times.
The students went to tour the photography and graphic arts departments at OSU Okmulgee. You might have spotted the students out snapping shots around Okmulgee.
The first two photos show a recently pruned scrub beside the Okmulgee Public Library  at two different times of day. Notice the shadows.
The Orpheum Theator  has been renovated to preserve its former glory. It housed a great old pipe organ.
The Okmulgee library is one of the most beautiful libraries in the state of Oklahoma. An addition was built onto the west side was made in an attempt to match the structures stone, its wonderful windows, and overall design.
St. Anthony’s Catholic Church is a historic Okmulgee building. Students toured the building and took photos of the exterior.
These ceilings are in the multimedia building on the OSU Okmulgee campus.
The students were treated to a class on graphic arts and a second class in general digital photography.
This pole clock graces the OSU Tech campus.
This cool old building with its castle like turrets, the date 1901 and the words Parkinson & CO is above the Star Drugstore and the Dowery Gift Shop on the west side of the town square.

The railroads run through Okmulgee. It is a noise I haven’t missed out here in the country. Railroad tracks are hard to get away from in Oklahoma.
The Okmulgee County Court House.
 The United Methodist Church on eigth street. If you ever get the chance to visit Okmulgee you must see some of the wonderful old buildings!
