Get out and walk the trail!
Nov 2019
I consider Tahlequah to be a very pretty town with a stream that runs through town along part of the History Trail. There are lots of benches and shade trees so walking the trail is easy. In addition there are displays along the trail that give historical facts about the Cherokee Nation and some of it's more well known members.

Great history to learn about & worth a visit by anyone...
Will need to allow a couple hours at least to take it all in.

Nice trail of the history of The Cherokee in Oklahoma.

We visited the Museum and bought the Passport ticket which lists all of the attraction along the trail and then browsed the inside of the museum while waiting for a tour of the old village to begin. Lots of history of the people within the museum. The old village could have been better if more craftspeople had been there, but it was not peak season and flooding kept some of the locals employed there from making it to the grounds. Due to time constraints we were not able to visit very many of the places listed on the passport. Once you buy the passport, you can use it indefinitely. Looking forward to visiting other places listed in the passport this fall.

Enlightening

Stumbled on this history trail. Immediately intrigued by the information covering the founding and development of Tahlequah as a city.
Involves plenty of walking through town and reading the information boards.

Wonderful place to visit! Cherokee history and actual example life in Oklahoma wealthier Cherokees.
It is not an example of the typical Cherokee way of life but depicts a home of a wealthy Cherokee, including slave quarters.

Scenic History
Oct 2017 • Couples
This self-guided trail along a designated paved walkway provides visitors with informative history of the Cherokee nation's people and their journey and arrival in Oklahoma from Florida. The scenic trail is a well laid out through the park woods and along the waterway with interesting landmarks along the way. There are a series of ‘History Boards’ with detailed information and illustrations including, Cherokee Settlement, Franklin Castle, Seminary Hall, History of Tehlequah, Sequoyah and Capitol Square. An enjoyable outing, scenic walk and history lesson all in one.

Well worth the visit

We were traveling with a motor coach tour and stopped at several local sights. We were greeted by a well spoken young lady that stayed with us as we moved to each venue. She was very articulate in explaining the history and current status of the Cherokee tribes. I most appreciated her candid personal experiences. We had a nice tour and history lesson about the Murrell House and then proceeded to the Cherokee Heritage Center. At the Heritage Center a docent dressed in period clothing explained what it was like when the Cherokee moved to Oklahoma. He explained and demonstrated canoe making, bow and arrow making, weaving, Cherokee games and Winter and Summer homes.

Hidden Treasure

We have been to this town several times and have done most of the history places. They are all worth it! We didn't know this trail existed until read on trip advisor! You will need to look up the map on your phone for this trail as part of it doesn't make sense without it. They could use a few more directional signs but after we had it on phone and had a town visitor map/brochure it was lots easier. Lots of great history info trail signs.

So enjoyed everything about the visit to the Tahlequah History Trail. The way the story unfolds is both moving and sensitive. This is one of the most interesting things to see in Tahlequah, and gives a great insight into the history and the suffering of the people. Don't miss it.

Waste of time

Many of the stops have no markers to indicate what happened there or its significance. We gave up after going to about 8 sites. Was very disappointed.
