    As Northeastern State University prepares to observe the anniversary of the opening of the Cherokee National Female Seminary in Tahlequah on May 7, 1889, NSU’s Archives plays a key role in the preservation of the history of those 125 years.
    School records, bulletins, class schedules, yearbooks, student newspapers, and other archival materials document the building’s evolution from a Cherokee high school for young women to a co-educational state normal school for training teachers for the public schools. As the state institution grew, its first building remained the focal point of a teachers college and ultimately of NSU.
