Seqouyah' Cabin

Support the causes & products that are donating money to cure CANCER

Hope you all find this one a little better.. and not so gruesome as the hanging judge... :-D


We went to Oklahoma for this day trip... Sequoyah's Cabin is located in Sequoyah County, on Okla. 101, about 10 miles northeast of Sallisaw. About 40 miles from Fort Smith... Sequoyah was a Cherokee Indian who was a skilled silver craftsman, who never learned to speak, write or read English. He is credited with inventing the Cherokee syllabary, which had a profound influence on the tribe. The cabin is a typical one-room frontier home of hewn logs with stone chimney and fireplace. It is enclosed in a stone shelter, which features relics and documents associated with Sequoyah's life. Near the shelter stands a relocated log structure, dating from 1855, that once adjoined the cabin. It is now used as a ranger station & a small gift shop. While in there they will use a Cherokee typewriter and write your name in Cherokee... Sequoyah lived in the house until his death while traveling in Mexico in 1843. Sequoyah’s widow then lived on the site until her death in 1855, when she deeded the land over to the Blair family. The Blair family then turned it over to the state.
