Named for the Creek Tribe, this town rapidly grew into Indian Territory's most important city when the U.S. government established the Union Agency for the Five Civilized Tribes in 1875. The government established a federal court here in 1889. The Dawes Commission to the Five Civilized Tribes was headquartered here to enroll the Indians and allot their land. It was in Muskogee that the Tribes gathered in 1905 to write a constitution for the State of Sequoyah. Muskogee was selected to be the capital of the "Indian State."Denied admission to the Union, Indian Territory then joined with Oklahoma Territory to form the great state of Oklahoma and Okie pride was born. Muskogee has grown with this uniquely American State to become one of its finest small cities. We're proud of our town and we will gladly welcome any and all who come. Muskogee has a wealth of museums that showcase its rich history and proud heritage. Muskogee is situated in eastern Oklahoma, approximately 48 miles southeast of Tulsa on the Muskogee Turnpike (at the intersection of U.S. Highways 62, 64, and 69).
