Webbers Falls Historical Museum
Offers a complete history of Oklahoma's early-day Cherokee settlers. Includes a special emphasis on Confederate General Stand Watie and his Cherokee Mounted Riflemen, who survived a civil war within the Cherokee Tribe, only to be defeated as part of the Confederacy during the Civil War. Webbers Falls was named for Chief Walter Webber and the Falls on the Arkansas River. Chief Webber settled here in 1828 and established a trading post, making Webbers Falls the second oldest town in Oklahoma. Webbers Falls was known as the gateway to Indian Territory. Many U.S. Marshals traveled back and forth from Webbers Falls to Ft. Smith and the courtroom of Judge Isaac Parker, better known as "Hanging Judge Parker."
