DUNCAN Sometimes it's said the best is saved for last; and when it comes to the Vintage Days at Foreman House, that rings true.
The Duncan Western Fall Celebration will end Sunday with free tours of Duncan's only historic house museum as well as many activities from 1-5 p.m. at 814 W. Oak.
"This is the fifth annual Vintage Day," said event organizer Gail Foreman. "Most of the years we have upward to 200 people."
The W.T. Foreman House was built in 1918 for one of Duncan's earliest residents. The historic home has been restored and was listed on the National Registry in 2003 as one of the earliest examples of the Prairie Style, made famous by Frank Lloyd Wright.
The home is owned by the Prairie House Foundation which, under the leadership of Gail Loafman, has overseen restoration of the building and furnishing the home with vintage era furnishings.
On display will be recent acquisitions of Tom Foreman's golf clubs, two suitcases carried by Etta Foreman and the family Bible, Loafman said.
"Inside the Bible was some correspondence, including some between Tom and Etta before they were married, which will be on display," Loafman said.
Also found in the Bible was a black silk mourning scarf, but Loafman said she was not sure when it was worn, although funeral notices were also found in the Bible.
