There are no words to describe the feeling that overcomes you as you drive onto the grounds at Har-Ber Village Museum and walk the paths through the Village. A visit to this quiet little community on the banks of Grand Lake definitely takes you back in time to a slower paced era when things were handmade and homemade.
Har-Ber Village Museum, on the picturesque wooded shores of Grand Lake o' the Cherokees in Grove Okahoma, is the site of a pioneer-era vilage and history mueum of over 100 exhibits displayed inside authentic log cabins and reproduction buildings. The Village features monthly special events and regularly scheduled historic craft demonstrations and workshops.
The Country Store features an assortment of unique gifts, hand-made items and crafts supplies and kits. The Event Tent is available to rent for a variety of occasions. Visitors enjoy walking the site's Nature Trail and eating thier lunches in the Picnic Pavilion or at The Cafe' at Har-Ber Village. Shopping for unique gifts and souvenirs, walking the scenic mile-and-a-half-long Nature Trail or eating in the Picnic Pavilion or Cafe' can all be done without museum admission.
Through self-guided tours of the Village, visitors experience the area's history and ecology, and view antiques, collectibles and reproductions in exhibitions representing the mid- 1800s through the early 1900s in the local four-state region (Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas). Plan to allow at least 2 hours for your visit.
