Skullyville Cemetery and Fort Coffee

Located in northern LeFlore County, both Skullyville and Ft. Coffee played an important role in the regions history.

Following the Choctaw Trail of Tears, Skullyville was established as the new capital and end of the “northern” route.  The principal landing point was at Ft. Coffee, established shortly after the Indian Removals began.

While not much remains of either location, it is still fascinating to see the areas where so much of Southeastern Oklahoma’s history was made.
