Creek Council House:

The Creek Council House located in Okmulgee, Oklahoma stands as a bridge from pre-removal Muscogee life in the North American southeast to a new life in Indian Territory. It is the place where present-day Muscogee (Creek) government was formally established and where Muscogee people founded the present-day city of Okmulgee in 1868.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

From 1878 until Oklahoma statehood, the Creek Council House at Okmulgee functioned as the Muscogee (Creek) Nation seat of government in Indian Territory. The Council House was home to such governmental offices as the Principal Chief, Supreme Court, Board Education, and the meeting rooms and law-making chambers of the National Council.

The Muscogee (Creek) Nation was forced to vacate the Council House at Oklahoma statehood, and the Council House was eventually sold as Federal government property to the city of Okmulgee in 1919. The Muscogee (Creek) Nation regained possession and control of its Council House in 2010.

The Muscogee (Creek) Nation completed an extensive renovation and restoration of the Council House in 2018. The interior spaces and rooms have been restored to reflect original layout and use during the years 1878 – 1907. These restored spaces and exhibits spotlight key government activities and historical events that took place within the Council House and across the Muscogee (Creek) Nation and Indian Territory during the 1878 – 1907 time period.
