Creek Council House Museum
Okmulgee, OK 74447
The Creek Council House Museum in Okmulgee has a rich history and celebrates the art and past of Native Americans. Built in 1878 and established as an educational center by the Creek Indian Memorial Association in the 1920s, the museum is on the National Register of Historic Places. It was once the headquarters for the black (African/Creek Indian) Lighthorsemen, and in 1937 Rufus Buck, black Indian leader of an outlaw gang in the late 1800s, was detained here after his arrest.
Each year the Creek Council House Museum displays Native American arts and crafts during temporary exhibits ...
