Movie Stars Do Visit Walters

Over the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house we go--except for the Harris boys, Robert, Ed and Paul, it was a three day road trip with stops at motels and eating in restaurants, which is something the family never did, traveling from their home in Tenafly, New Jersey, to Walters, Oklahoma. Their destination was the home of their grandparents, Lee and Annie Harris at 312 E. California. Their father, Bob, was born here, grew up here and graduated from Walters High School in 1940. The family came back every year in August for a visit. While their friends were enjoying vacations on the Jersey Shore and other cool places on the Atlantic coast, the Harrises chose to bask in the August heat of Oklahoma. The boys loved it.
