Photos of the Cherokee National Capitol in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. Designed by C.W. Goodlander and completed in 1869, the brick Italianate structure served as the Cherokee capitol until Oklahoma statehood in 1907, at which point the structure became the Cherokee County Courthouse. The building was turned back over to the Cherokee Nation in 1979 after the completion of the current Cherokee County Courthouse. The Cherokee National Capitol, which currently houses the judicial system for the Cherokee Nation, is a National Historic Landmark.

Photos of the Chickasaw National Capitol in Tishomingo, Oklahoma. Designed by J.A. Shannon and completed in 1898, the granite Richardson Romanesque structure served as the Chickasaw capitol until the Chickasaws were forced to vacate the building after Oklahoma became a state in 1907. The building was sold to Johnston County in 1910, which used the building as its county courthouse for most of the 20th century. The Chickasaw Nation repurchased the building for resumed use as its capitol in 1992. The Chickasaw National Capitol is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
