Additional Info

Originally constructed on “Agency Hill,” by contractors Proctor and Maxwell of Kansas City, this two story structure was to serve as a consolidated seat of government for the Five Civilized Tribes.  The vantage point of this structure provided views of 25 miles across the Arkansas River Valley.  The Five Civilized Tribes were the Native American nations of the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, and Seminole.

Berggren Architects assessed this structure constructed of native sandstone and provided recommendations for the care and maintenance of the masonry, interior finishes and drainage around the structure.  The assessment was completed in association with Conservator Mayda Jensen.
