Muscogee Nation set to retake possession of historic council home

The Muscogee Nation of Oklahoma is set to retake possession of its historic council house.

The two-story brick structure served as the tribe's capitol from 1878 until 1907. In 1919, the building was sold to the city of Okmulgee, which entered into negotiations with the tribe earlier this year.

The tribe agreed to pay $3.2 million for the house. A ceremony on November 20 will mark the reacquisition of the property.
