Country Music Legendary Merle Haggard and His Childhood Boxcar Home

Your Lot and Parcel

My guest speaks to Merle Haggard's contribution to the world of country music often referred as the Bakersfield Sound, and the history of the boxcar that started in 1935 when the Haggard’s moved to Bakersfield from Oklahoma. They purchased the boxcar as temporary living, until they built a permanent structure on their land. In 1937, Merle Haggard was born and then brought home to the now famous boxcar. In the late1950s they left the boxcar for their new home on the same property.Over the decades the house became worn and fell into disrepair. In recent years, a group called, “Citizens Preserving History” raised awareness and money with a “Save Hag’s Boxcar” campaign to move his childhood boxcar home to the Kern County Museum. In honor of Haggard and all he contributed to Bakersfield and country music! www.kerncountymuseum.orghttp://www.yourlotandparcel.org
