During the early 1900's, Picher, Oklahoma was a thriving mining town. Hundreds of people flocked there to work in the mines. The town was shut off from the rest of the world in 2009 by the U.S. Government. A century of unrestricted subsurface excavation dangerously undermined most of Picher's town buildings and left giant piles of toxic lead-contaminated mine tailings (known as chat) heaped throughout the area. Today, all that is left is crumbling ruins.

Murrell Home out side of Tahlequah in Park Hill Ok.  One of my first jobs was a tour guide here through Cherokee Nation Summer Youth.

This historic Murrell Home outside of Tahlequah is just down the road from my families property. I remember riding horses down to the park here for picnics. Now they have a "No Horses Allowed" sign in the park!
