Sequoyah's Cabin in Sallisaw is an Oklahoma landmark that has been protected and preserved to give visitors an inside look at the life of this famous Cherokee man. Sequoyah is well-known as a silversmith who developed the written alphabet for the Cherokee language. Built in in 1829, visitors to this log cabin will experience firsthand Sequoyah's efforts to increase literacy within the Cherokee Nation. The cabin was enclosed in a protective native stone cover building in 1936 for future generations to experience its unique history.
The museum today explains Cherokee history and basics of Sequoyah's syllabary. View exhibits and artifacts of early Cherokee life around the cabin, and browse items that reflect the great accomplishments of Sequoyah and his contribution to Oklahoma history and heritage. Settled on a serene 10-acre park, visitors enjoy walking the very grounds Sequoyah once walked after exploring the cabin.
