Stunning facility....our family just returned from a day at the Chickasaw Culture Center and are still talking about the people, the food, the grounds, the education we got there and we will be going back.

From owner on 06/25/13

When Frontier City originally opened in 1958 at the Oklahoma State Fair and then moved to the current location a couple of years later. There was an Indian Village component to Frontier City. Additionally, there were trading posts along the Turner Turnpike that existed and thrived during that time; however, none that existed right where I35 and the Turner Turnpike intersect. Frontier City is still open seasonally; however, no longer includes an Indian Village. Additionally, another notable Indian trading post was the following; however, it is about 20 minutes west of Frontier City. Indian Territory – Cherokee Trading Post. Between I-40 and Route 66, west of El Reno, stands the Cherokee Trading Post, which is much more than a run-of-the-mill truck stop. Billboards tout buffalo burgers and pies at its restaurant, the complex sports a huge mural recounting the history of Native Americans in Oklahoma (plus several statues and totem poles) and a couple of live bison lounge in a pen nearby. In a large gallery building shaped roughly like three teepees, you’ll see thousands of pieces of American Indian and Western art, crafts and toys. It’s a place where you can buy authentic steer horns or children’s coyote socks.
