Chickasaw White House

Due to caution in regards to COVID-19, the Chickasaw White House is temporarily closed. 

Once considered a mansion on the great frontier, this Victorian style home served as the private residence of Chickasaw Gov. Douglas H. Johnston and his extended family for decades in Milburn, Oklahoma. Built in 1898, this historic home was the setting for many important social and political events including high profile weddings and meetings between prominent politicians and members of the Dawes Commission. Through his work with President Theodore Roosevelt, Governor Johnston achieved notable accomplishments on behalf of the Chickasaw Nation and its people.

The home features cherry fireplace mantles, crystal chandeliers and 14-foot ceilings with many of the original furnishings and décor remaining intact today. A multitude of fine art and musical instruments can be found within the home acting as a testament to the Chickasaw Nation’s dedication to education in all fields. Governor Johnston and his wife were educators before entering into the political sphere where they brought intellectual curiosity into their world as public servants.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the house now operates as a museum and is open to the public. The white house also offers unique events to the public throughout the year. Check out the Chickasaw Country events page for more details.

It is listed as 'The White House of the Chickasaws' on the National Register of Historic Sites. Admission to the museum is free and open to the public on Wednesdays through Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., with the exception of federal holidays.
