Tahlequah is rich in natural, cultural and historical resources. There is an underlying sense of the past – a rich foundation on which Tahlequah is built. The Cherokee language on storefronts and street signs serves as a tangible reminder.
In addition to being a hub for those seeking Cherokee genealogy and history information, the sparkling waters of the Illinois River and Lake Tenkiller attract hundreds of thousands aquatic recreational enthusiasts. Our rich forests and hills are home to all nature of wildlife year round.
Tahlequah is home to Northeastern State University. Stately Seminary Hall, the centerpiece of the campus, served as the Cherokee National Female Seminary prior to statehood. Visit Tahlequah and see why our visitors become our friends!
