HISTORY: TWO ITEMS•MAGAZINE-The Creek Indian National Council House article in "TRUE FRONTIER Actual Stories of the Old West" January 1970, article on page 39 byMary B. Christian, Okmulgee, OK.•PHOTO-Oklahoma Creek Nation Council House Photo used by 1950's post card - this glossy 8x10 photo is glue/mounted on photo album paper, showing where image was to be cropped for postcard. In great shape but does show slight wrinkles, from being glued I am guessing. I don't have the actual postcard but saw several in other items. This photo was in an album of local Okmulgee, Oklahoma, Mary Bozarth Christian, family of early Oklahoma pioneers - writer who was a contributor to several magazines and the destruction left by the Civil War, the Muscogee (Creek) Nation began restoring order to their new home. In 1867, the Nation adopted a new constitution calling for a new national government modeled on a bicameral legislative system similar to that of the United States. In 1867, the Nation constructed a log cabin capitol building at the newly selected national capital of Okmulgee to accommodate the meetings of the legislative branch, House of Kings and House of Warriors, of the new government.

A Post office opened there on April 29, 1869, under the spelling Okmulkee until November 15, 1883, when it became Okmulgee. The town’s name is of Muscogee origin, Okmvrke, translated as “boiling water” and is named for the historic tribal town, Ocmulgee, in present Russell County, Alabama.

The two-story, log council house of the Creek Nation was constructed near the edge of a stand of timber and quickly became the center of town. In 1878, fire destroyed the council house, and a stone structure was built in its place. The Creek Council House received designation as a National Historic Landmark in 1961 and was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1966 (NR 66000632) Downtown Okmulgee was added to the Register in 1992.

The Council House remains at the center of the historic Okmulgee town square. It is now operated by the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Cultural Center & Archives
