Muscogee (Creek) Nation Council House
The Muscogee (Creek) Nation Council House in Okmulgee has a rich history and celebrates the art and past of Native Americans. It was originally built in 1868 and rebuilt in 1878 with stone after a fire destroyed the original structure.
In 1923, it was established as a museum and educational center for Native American history and was later listed as a National Historic Landmark and on the National Register of Historic Places. From 1906 until 2010, the building has changed ownership several times. Initially the U.S. Department of the Interior removed the Council House from the Muscogee (Creek) Nation and, in 1971, sold the building to the City of Okmulgee. In 2010, the Muscogee (Creek) Nation regained ownership of the building from the City of Okmulgee.
