To have a collection you must first have a place to keep it, so when we moved back to Oklahoma we wanted to move into the Historic district and this place came up for sale at the right time. Built in 1907 which is state hood for Oklahoma, The home was owned 65 years by Wilma Franklin, her son John Franklin was a two time Pulitzer Prize winner. When we bought the place everything was painted white but all the wood trim was untouched, saving the great wood work. For the 3 of us it's a great little house but the collections will soon take over, have plans to build a shop out back which will help some but I'm sure in time we may need a larger place.
