The Cherokee Trading Post's story began in the 1940's. James and Ruth Wilson, our grandparents, sold Chenille Bedspreads, Hand-hooked Rugs, and Cherokee made products on National Road, Route 40 in Triadelphia West Virginia.
When the new Interstates were paved across America, Ruth and her children set up shop along the way, moving from the National Road location in 1967 to the newly built Interstate 70, east of Wheeling WVa, where it is still located today. Ruth and James' daughter, Barbara, opened her operation in Clinton Oklahoma that same year.
In 2012 the Cherokee Trading Post closed the Restaurant after many years of faithful patronage, and expanded the gift shop to include Western Cowboy Boots and Work Boots, Jackets, and much more. 10,000 sq. feet of Cowboy and Indian Wears, Moccasins, and Turquoise Jewelry, Toys, Native Headdresses, Native Bustles and more. Many made in the USA and Made in Oklahoma gifts.
Stop in, we are confident you too will make the Cherokee Trading Post, a family stop, for many more generations. Did I mention we have very nice (clean) Restrooms?
The Cherokee Trading Post, Clinton Oklahoma, has been family owned and operated since 1967.
