Historically known as Three Forks, (the Verdigris, Grand and Arkansas Rivers meet here) the Muskogee/Fort Gibson area has played an important role in the development of northeastern Oklahoma.

An interesting place to visit is the Ataloa Lodge Museum ( http://ataloa.bacone.edu) located on the Bacone College campus which houses one of the finest privately owned collections of Native American art in the country.

The Five Civilized Tribes Museum ( http://www.fivetribes.org/ ) pays tribute to the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek and Seminole tribes who were forced to relocate to Oklahoma's Indian Territory after the Louisiana Purchase.
One of the most unique attractions in Muskogee is the U.S.S. Batfish War Memorial (http://www.ussbatfish.com/index.html), which features an actual WWII submarine that can be toured. An ideal place for families in April and December is the Honor Heights Park ( http://www.cityofmuskogee.com ), where a kaleidoscope of color adorns the grounds during the Azalea Festival in the spring, and twinkling, colorful light displays shine during the Garden of Lights Festival at Christmastime.
