Come and enjoy the festivities as we celebrate Governor Johnston's Birthday! Festivities include White house tours, live music, carriage rides, make-and-take crafts, children’s activities, gunfights and more. Lunch will be provided.
This free event offers attendees a chance to step back into the early 1900s with food and activities representing the life of Chickasaw Nation Governor Douglas H. Johnston, who was the first Chickasaw Governor to be appointed by the President of the United States in 1906. Governor Douglas H. Johnston and his family occupied the White House from 1898-1971. In the 1990's the Chickasaw Nation restored the White House to its original grandeur. It is on the National Registry of Historic Places.
The Chickasaw White House is located at the north edge of Emet, 10 miles east of Tishomingo, Oklahoma.
