We stopped to break up a long drive. The grounds were pristine and the staff so friendly. It's an interesting way to spend about an hour. I recommend grabbing a snack and enjoying their picnic area too. It's completely worth the jog off of the interstate.

Sequoyah's Cabin is a designation location because it's not located on the way to anywhere. However, it's well worth the visit if you like history and want to learn more about the Cherokee culture. It's only about 15 minutes from home but never went there until friends from Oklahoma City wanted to see it. It is the best hidden secret... More

We stopped by Sequoyah's Cabin park and we're very impressed. It is on Sequoyah's former farm and the WPA built a building around the cabin in the 1930s and a rock wall around the farm as well as other improvements. There are paved walkways and beautiful informative features around the acreage. The cabin itself is a wonderful piece of history... More

Yes it is off the beaten path but I'd still recommend it. Nice park setting with well tended grounds. It has been open since 1936 and therefore has a lot of genuine artifacts.

Beautiful grounds, learned a lot about Sequoyah. Too bad the gift shop was closed. Lovely especially in the fall.

We took the time to detour off I 40 to find Sequoyah's cabin. Its approx 10 miles off the beaten path from Sallisaw but worth every minute to get there. You even to get to drive by Akins cemetery which has a (in)famous claim to fame The cabin site has beautifully kept grounds . The path to the actual building... More

A visiting friend wanted to see this because they were into Native American history. I certainly learned more than expected. Never realized so much history was simply a few miles away. Nice way to spend an afternoon.

I went to this to satisfy my wife but let me tell you I was very pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it. The history of a written language is often taken for granted and is not frequently discussed. This gives you an on site history of the Cherokee discovery of communication by writing. I promise you will like... More
