Now Playing: Oakland House - Interview with Diane Murphee - Oct 2015
date: Oct 12, 2015
speaker: Diane Murfee
This video is the result of an interview conducted in October 2015 with Diane and Mickey Murfee at their home in El Dorado. The home is called Oakland and was completed in 1938. Built by Dr. and Mrs. Garland Murphy, it was named after Dr. Murphy’s birthplace in Union Parish, Louisiana. Designed by architect Dave Weaver, the home is a two-story Colonial Revival structure. Diane and Mickey Murfee have owned the home since 1975. Our thanks to Jack Wilson, Diane Alderson, Larry Powell, and the South Arkansas Community College School of Performance & Media Arts for making this video possible. The Murfee’s received the 2015 John Abbott Award for their preservation efforts at Oakland and were very generous with their time during the filming process.
