The Muscogee (Creek) Council House in Okmulgee was originally constructed as a log cabin capitol in 1878 and quickly became the center of the community.  After being destroyed in a fire in 1878 it was rebuilt as a stone structure.

History comes to life as you visit the Creek Council House; the various rooms were reserved for the branches of Muscogee (Creek) Nation government.  The Creeks had developed a bicameral legislative system, similar to the United States, and the Council House was used for meetings of the legislative branch, House of Kings and House of Warriors.

Today, this entirely restored structure is still located in the center of the vibrant Okmulgee downtown scene and welcomes visitors Tuesday-Friday 10am-4pm and Saturday 10am-3pm.
