The Cabins

Dec.12,1937 the Oklahoman, carried an article, "St. Joseph's to Try Novel Experiment", (pg.34) by building cabins on the land behind the gym and central building to house elderly people. The idea being children without families and the elderly could enrich each other's lives. Here, some remaining cabins are renovated in 2010 by the present owners. MAH, 2010
