The Chickasaw Nation's original capitol in Tishomingo, Oklahoma, is a stately, magnetic museum that has hosted visitors from all over the world. The Victorian, gothic-style building was dedicated in 1898 and served as the Nation’s capitol until 1906. It was built of red granite from the nearby quarry owned by former Chickasaw Nation Governor R.M. Harris and functioned as the seat of the tribe's government until Oklahoma achieved statehood. Today, visitors can tour the museum and learn about Chickasaw history.
