- Does anyone else pass the Capitol at night and see the red beacon lights and think of a ballerina’s tutu?
- 100 years ago on March 9, The Oklahoman reported President Woodrow Wilson was settling into the office of the Presidency,
corsets were selling for a dollar at Brock’s, and Pettee’s was advertising the Ohio Electric Vacuum Sweeper for $25!
- In 1913, the Legislature was debating the cost of building the Capitol; in 2013 the legislators debate repairs to keep the building standing.
-There is a wind generator (windmill) just north of the Harn Homestead. When I pass it on I-235 I often think how windmills probably populated the farms located north of the city after the Run and how appropriate it is to see a modern one working today.Learn more about the Harn Homestead at http://www.harnhomestead.com/
