Sequoyah's Cabin was the home during 1829-1844 of the Cherokee Indian, Sequoyah (also known as George Gist), who created a written language for the Cherokee Nation. It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1965.
The house is maintained by the Oklahoma Historical Society as a historic house museum, and is furnished to appear as it might have when Sequoyah lived there. There are relics and documents associated with his life.
The one-room frontier cabin is made of hewn logs with a stone chimney and fireplace. The actual cabin is located inside a stone memorial building built by the Works Progress Administration in 1936, and is surrounded by a 10-acre (40,000 m2) park. There is a bronze statue of Sequoyah outside.
