These three terrifying Oklahoma haunted historical sites in the Cherokee Nation are among some of the strangest and scariest ghost stories in the Sooner State. All three have had reports of paranormal activity and have been examined by professional investigators, ghost hunters, and amateurs alike. Each tells tales of ghosts, strange happenings, and unexplained encounters with known and unknown supernatural entities.

Unlike many other haunted sites around the state that are located on private property and closed off to the public, you can actually visit these. That's right they're open to the public so you can make a visit and tour these historic and allegedly haunted places. So where are they? These three are in and around Tahlequah, OK. in the Cherokee Nation. Two are in Park Hill, OK. and another one in Rose, OK. which are both close to Tahlequah, OK. It would make for a nice scenic drive and maybe even a quick summer staycation getaway.

The three haunted historic places are the Saline Courthouse in Rose, OK. the Murrell Home in Park Hill, OK. and the Jack Brown Home also in Park Hill, OK. Each has its own unique background and history, not to mention ghost stories. There's everything for actual ghosts, floating orbs, shadow figures, strange noises, unexplained phenomena, and more. Not all the stories and spirits rumored to inhabit these locations are frightening, some are actually friendly. Or are at least tolerant or completely uninterested in the still living.
