    I like the fireplace and what I would assume to be brass inserts. I’m assuming that would be original.

      Me too! I especially love that little two-light number with the basketweave and flowers.

    Tahlequah is the old Cherokee nation capital and dates back to 1839. However, in 1900, the population was still under 2,000. (now over 16,000 but still a center of Cherokee heritage) Nice example here of a modest house of the early 1900’s. The design might be from one of the popular house plan books of the early 1900’s. Looks fairly intact for a house of this period.

      Tahlequah is still Cherokee Nation capital today. The Cherokee Nation was established there after the removal on the Trail of Tears. It’s district today consists of 14 counties in Northeastern OK. However, there is also the Eastern Band of Cherokees in North Carolina. Tahlequah is not at all what people think of when they think of Oklahoma. It is at the edge of the Ozark Mountains, so lots of hills, bluffs, cliffs, etc. It is a college town, Northeastern State University, so population of full time residents is around the 16,000 number, but the college enrolls more than 10,000 students and that number isn’t really representative of the rural population at all. The Illinois River is beautiful and a great recreation spot, with several outfitters. Lake Tenkiller is truly the most beautiful lake with bluffs, amazing views, and super clear water. Tenkiller has marinas, resorts, and state campgrounds. Tahlequah also has several historic locations, most Cherokee related, one of them being Northeastern State University, since it started as a female seminary for Cherokees. With so much history, there are some historical homes, however, being a college town alot of them have been used as rentals for many decades now and you can only see small clues of their original style. There are a few that I’ve seen being somewhat restored in more recent years. From what I understand, Tahlequah is also home to Oklahoma’s only remaining antebellum home, the Murrell Home. George Murrell married Minerva Ross, who was niece of Chief John Ross of the Cherokees during the removal. Unfortunately, during the Civil War several of the homes were burned, one of them being the home of Chief John Ross that sat near the Murrell Home.

    I love those decorative panels over the fireplace! There are lots of other nice details, too. But the kitchen just makes me sad.

    This is great! I needed a staircase pic to show our craftsperson. Someone removed our front staircase years ago in an attempt to turn our 1890’s house into a two unit building. I have scrounged the stair parts, and now have a good design idea. The staircase looks good, and it fits into a tight spot!

    Yes. I see some curlicue trim under one window, but it doesn’t seem to be repeated elsewhere. Details need to be restored.

    This is a pattern home likely William Radford design no 86. The no 86 was popular in Oklahoma and probably because Radford advertised in newspapers here. This was one that appeared in the adverts.
    Oklahoma has several Radford homes.

      You saved me a lot of work! I have two old photo postcards of this design in different locations. I knew it was a plan design but didn’t know who! Thank you!
