Discover the truth behind the legends as you take a guided tour of Cherokee history before and after the forced relocation.

Murrell Home – Visit the only antebellum plantation home left in Oklahoma

Tahlequah, Okla. – While in the Cherokee capital, tour the National Capitol Building, the Supreme Court Building and the Cherokee National Prison; all locations are listed on the National Register of Historic Places

Northeastern State University’s Seminary Hall – Once known as the Cherokee Female Seminary, the first institution of higher learning for women west of the Mississippi River, Seminary Hall is now the main campus building at NSU, a comprehensive regional university and the fourth-largest public four-year institution of higher learning in Oklahoma.

You’ll also experience additional historic events from Cherokee history during your tour. Interpretive actors will be on hand to reenact several of the stories. Please note: This interactive tour requires moderate physical activity – walking up hills, role-playing, etc.
