Cherokee Nation Restoring Capitol To Original Appearance

Posted: Updated:

  The Cherokee Nation breaks ground on a project to restore their National Capitol building to its late 1800's appearance.

  The Capitol was built in 1869 in Tahlequah and was occupied by all three branches of the Cherokee Nation's government prior to statehood.

  Now, it houses the judicial branch of the government.

  The restoration project includes new doors and windows plus improvements to replicate the building's original appearance.

  Work is scheduled to be complete by the summer.

  The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is also designated a National Landmark.

  The Cherokee Nation says the project has been funded in part with federal funds from the Save America's Treasures program administered by the National Park Service.
