Located on 44 heavily wooded acres tucked away in the Oklahoma foothills of the Ozark Mountains, the Cherokee Heritage Center in Tahlequah provides information about Cherokee history and culture in a variety of ways. The center is home to the 1710 Cherokee Village, Adams Corner Rural Village, the Trail of Tears exhibit, the Cherokee National Museum and the Cherokee Family Research Center.

The 1710 Cherokee Village, also known as Diligwa, is a new outdoor living exhibit meant to take visitors back to early Cherokee trading days. Discover the life of the people in the early 18th century through interpretive stations, residential sites and more. Walk through 14 stations that detail the historic landscape in 1710 and demonstrate a range of cultural practices such as-- stick ball, basket making, flintknapping and blow gun making. The exhibit features a summer house, winter house, corn crib, kitchen garden and a council house. Two recreation areas showcase Cherokee games from centuries ago that are still played today.
