Capitolshots Photography’s collection of images of the Chickasaw National Capitol, the former Johnston County courthouse, 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.
