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 Chickasaw National Capitol, which currently houses the judicial system for the Cherokee Nation, is a National Historic Landmark.
