Built by the Chickasaw Nation in 1898, the Chickasaw National Capitol Building in Tishomingo was the seat of Chickasaw government from 1898 until 1907. After Oklahoma statehood in 1907, the Chickasaw Nation was forced to vacate the Capitol, and in 1910 it was sold to Johnston County to be used as a courthouse. Because of its historic significance and unique architecture, the Capitol was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.

In 1992, the Chickasaw Nation repurchased the Capitol from Johnston County. The Chickasaw National Capitol Building is no longer used for government business, and the first and second floors of the Capitol now house exhibit space. The largest exhibit room focuses on Chickasaw government history from 1856 to 1907. Chickasaw Governor Douglas Johnston's office and the National Secretary's vault have been recreated to look as they did in 1898. Other interesting items are also on display throughout the Capitol, including the portrait exhibit of Chickasaw governors, a gift shop located in the first floor reception area and a rotating photography exhibit located on the second floor.

The Chickasaw National Well Exhibit, completed in 2006, is located outside the Capitol. Visit the Chickasaw National Capitol in Tishomingo and experience Chickasaw history firsthand. Tours are available upon request Monday through Friday from 8am to 4:30pm; large groups are asked to make tour reservations in advance.
