The Cherokee National Supreme Court Museum was built in 1844 by James S. Pierce and housed the Cherokee National Supreme Court. This historic building played host to the original printing press of the Cherokee Advocate, the Cherokee Nation's official publication and the first newspaper in Oklahoma. Stop by during a trek through Tahlequah and see three exhibit areas detailing the Cherokee National Judicial System, the Cherokee Advocate and Phoenix newspapers, and the Cherokee language.

As the oldest government building in Oklahoma, the Cherokee National Supreme Court Museum features a wide variety of historical items including photos, stories, objects and furniture. Established by Justice John Martin, the first sessions of this government body were held here more than 160 years ago. Witness the historical marriage between judicial history and American Indian culture firsthand at the Cherokee National Supreme Court Museum.
