A sampling of heirloom seeds now available in the museum store.

The Friends of the Murrell Home Gift Shop has launched a brand new online store at mkt.com/murrellhome.  The museum gift shop, housed at the Murrell Home Historic Site in Park Hill, carries a wide variety of items relating to Cherokee history and nineteenth century life in Indian Territory.  History and language books, maps, historic toys, handmade reproductions, souvenirs, and apparel are just a few of the items available.


A new line of heirloom seeds are also available in-store and online.  These non-GMO, non-hybrid heirloom vegetable, flower, and herb seeds are provided by Seed Savers Exchange, a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of historic seed varieties.  The varieties sold at the Murrell Home are representative of nineteenth-century flora that would have been grown in Indian Territory.  These vegetables and herbs will be planted in the historic site’s kitchen garden beginning this spring.  Cherokee Trail of Tears beans, bloody butcher corn, Cherokee purple tomatoes, and Moon & Stars watermelon are just a few of the twenty-four varieties now available for purchase.

The online store is accessible at mkt.com/murrellhome or by clicking “Shop Now” on the Murrell Home’s Facebook page at facebook.com/murrellhome.  All of the proceeds from the gift shop and online store benefit the Friends of the Murrell Home, the support organization for the Murrell Home Historic Site.  The historic site is located at 19479 E. Murrell Home Rd. in Park Hill, three miles south of Tahlequah.  The physical museum store is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00am-5:00pm.  Call 918-456-2751 for more information.
