ORACLE, Ariz.-The Oracle Historical Society (OHS) will be open for its Annual Meeting on Sun., Nov. 11 at 11 a.m. There is no charge to attend and refreshments will be served.
One new exhibit is Vera Henderson’s beautiful bottle collection, all found locally. Another is the Oracle Rifle Cup, a very large clay pot that was the trophy of rifle target shooting competitions beginning in the spring of 1895 between the Acadia Ranch and the Mountain View Hotel, on loan from the Terry collection.

This will also be your last chance to see Elizabeth Ott’s show of watercolors. Elizabeth who passed away 20 years ago was a much-loved artist whose painting graced this year’s striking blue Oracle Run t-shirt, some of which are still available for sale.
As a way to celebrate Arizona’s centennial birthday, Christopher Lucic stopped at the historic Binghampton Cemetery north of the Rillito to photograph a piece of the Sonoran Desert.

Around 1900, the Bingham family decided they could take the art of irrigation learned in Utah and uses it to turn saguaros and creosote into a thriving farming community. But with the death of their friend, John Harris, they needed a burial spot and so began the cemetery.
Binghampton became a thriving community in Tucson.

On Fri, Nov. 16 at 6 p.m. at the Acadia, the OHS will host a Speaker Event featuring Cathy Ellis whohas assembled historic photographs and will speak about the Bingham family history.

The evening will showcase Binghampton, Redington and Lucic’s photographs from the cemetery. The event is presented without charge and refreshments will be served.
