Aline hosts the Fall Fair on the second weekend in October. The celebration is kicked off Friday evening by firing a 100-pound anvil more than 100 feet into the air. Afterward, watch a movie under the stars. Saturday enjoy the parade, free soup, tractor pull and cake walk.
Just southeast of Aline is a unique attraction that you don’t want to miss. At one time there were thousands of sod houses dotting the plains of North America. This “Soddy,” built by Marshal McCully in 1894, is the only one still standing in Oklahoma that was built by a homesteader.
Marshall McCully made the Cherokee Outlet Land Run of 1893 staking his claim south of Aline, Oklahoma. He built his two-room home with one-half acre of thick buffalo grass sod and used alkali clay to plaster the inside walls. Completed in 1894 McCully added a wood floor one year later in 1895. Today the museum encloses the original Sod House.
