The City of Tahlequah has many attractions to offer filmmakers and visitors from the scenic landscapes of Lake Tenkiller and the Illinois River to local shops and eateries in the heart of the city’s downtown area. As the Capital of the Cherokee Nation, the city boasts many historic attractions including the Cherokee Nation Supreme Court and Cherokee Village. Historic housing is best represented in sites such as the Murrell Home (pictured above), a Greek Revival-style house built in 1845 on nearly five acres. Built nearly a decade later in the early 1940’s, Tahlequah’s Dream Theatre will play host to this month’s Tribal Film Festival, which showcases an international and local selection of inspiring Indigenous films. Located in the city’s historic downtown, the 300-seat Art Deco style theatre showcases a variety of arts, entertainment, movies and live music.
