category : Landmarks
Sequoyah's Homesite The original log cabin home of Sequoyah was built in 1829 and contains many artifacts relative to Sequoyah's remarkable achievements. Sequoyah built this one-room log cabin to serve as his home shortly after his move to what is present day Oklahoma.

The cabin and surrounding grounds became the property of the State of Oklahoma in 1936. Shortly thereafter, The stone cover building and walls were built entirely around the cabin by the Works Progress Administration to ensure the preservation of this monumental historic landmark designated by the Secretary of the Interior as a National Historic Landmark.

The grounds are maintained with picnic facilities, restrooms, playground areas to accommodate group tours and outings for school groups.
