  • NSU-Archives.jpg NSU preps for Seminary Hall anniversary

    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.
