Facility:George M. Murrell Home
Description:George Michael Murrell was born to a prominent family in Lynchburg, Virginia, in 1808. When the Cherokees were forced to leave their homes in the East during the "Trail of Tears" in 1838-39, Murrell chose to move with his wife's family to the new Nation in the West. In Park Hill, Indian Territory, he established a plantation and built a large frame home similar to those he remembered in Virginia. He called the Greek Revival-style house "Hunter's Home" because of his fondness for the fox hunt.
