Like most of the towns in the American West, the City of Muskogee was born as a railroad town, but even before the railroad, the area was a hub for the settlement of what became Indian Territory. Named for a Creek tribe, Muskogee was established in 1872, and served as the capital of the Indian State of Sequoyah. Denied admission to the Union, Sequoyah joined with Oklahoma Territory to form the state of Oklahoma.
