DescriptionPawhuska is capital of the Osage Nation, the wealthiest Native American tribe in America. The town was named after Pahuiska, chief of the Osage Tribe at the beginning of the 19th century. Pawhuska was later the home of the first Boy Scout troop in America, organized by Rev. John Mitchell in May 1909.
The architectural diversity of Pawhuska's downtown historic district stems from the prosperity that came with the oil strike on Osage land in 1921. Buildings of note include the 1887 Gothic-style Immaculate Conception Catholic Church; the Constantine Theatre and the 1894 City Hall, originally the Osage Agency house.
