Entrance to the museum, one block west of Route 66 in downtown Vinita.
This high-wheel bicycle was ridden in early day parades by a popular Vinita businessman.
Vinita was founded in 1871 and has been a
popular tourist destination ever since.
Tom Buffington (1865-1938)
was mayor of Vinita for four terms and chief of the Cherokees from 1899 to 1903. Visit the museum to learn about his fascinating story.
