TAHLEQUAH, Okla. – To celebrate the fifth anniversary of the groundbreaking of the restoration work for the Cherokee National Supreme Court Museum, Cherokee Nation officials are giving away museum replicas to guests Aug. 13-17.
Originally built in 1844, the Cherokee National Supreme Court Museum is located in Oklahoma’s oldest public building. From groundbreaking to museum opening, the project took a little more than two years to complete. Today, the building houses a state-of-the-art museum.
The 1,950-square-foot museum features exhibits in three historic aspects: the Cherokee National Judicial System, the Cherokee Advocate and Cherokee Phoenix newspapers, and the Cherokee language, with a variety of historical items, including photos, stories, objects and furniture. Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for seniors and students.
