This site was named for Chief Tahlonteeskee, who presided over the Cherokee Nation from 1809 to 1818.

He was part of the Old Settler band of Cherokees who moved from the ancestral lands in the Southeast United States.

They settled in Arkansas and Tahlonteeskee permitted missionaries to establish Dwight Mission. 

He was the first western Chief to allow Christianity to come to the Cherokees.

Tahlonteeskee became the Old Settler capital of the Cherokee Nation in Indian Territory from 1828-1839 and is considered the oldest governmental capital in Oklahoma.
