Chickasaw National Historic Capitol (1858-1897)

In 1858, a two-story brick building was built on what is now the Capitol Square in Tishomingo, Oklahoma. The Chickasaw Capitol provided a larger, permanent building to house the offices of the Chickasaw governor and judicial and legislative offices. By 1894, the brick Capitol was deemed unsafe and scheduled to be torn down. Demolition for the Capitol building began in 1897.
