The Gorge Murrell House

George Murrell was the son of a prominent Virginia family and a successful buinessman when he met and married Minerva Ross the daughter of a prominent Cherokee Family. Ross was the daughter of the Treasurer of the Cherokee Nation and the niece of John Ross the Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation from 1828 to 1866. Murrell came to Oklahoma with his wife during the infamous "Trail of Tears" and established a plantation and built a Greek Revival-Style home like those he remembered in Virginia.

Cherokee Cabin

Also on the property of the Murrell Home is an old style cabin which was commonly used by regular members of the tribe during that timeframe.
