Description
Gore was the stopping point for Cherokee Indians as they migrated west in 1828. They established a council ground and in 1829 welcomed Sam Houston—who later married a Cherokee—into their tribe. The settlement remained the capital of what became the Cherokee Nation West until the Eastern Cherokees, who were forced to join their Western counterparts via the “Trail of Tears,” gained control of the nation and relocated the capital to Tahlequah in 1843.
