Description

This historic mansion built in 1845 by wealthy merchant, George M. Murrell, who married the niece of Cherokee Chief John Ross, stands as the only antebellum mansion in Oklahoma, and is operated by the Oklahoma Historical Society. It has been designated a National Historic Landmark, and is a Certified Trail of Tears site.

Murrell was a Confederate supporter, and the Rosses favored the North, which is probably why the house survived the destruction that befell those around it during the Civil War. After the war, various Ross relatives lived in the home, as the Murrells spent most of their time between their other plantations in Virginia and Louisiana. Ross relatives occupied the house until the allotment of Cherokee land in the early 1900s.
