Trail of TearsEnd of the Trail - Choctaw Nation - Atoka, Oklahoma

in Trail of Tears

Welcome to Atoka! The county seat of Atoka County, we are located in the southeastern portion of the great state of Oklahoma. Settled in the mid 1800's, Atoka was an important stop on the Butterfield Overland Stage Road, the route followed when mail service between Missouri and San Francisco first began. Atoka, described in 1884 as the metropolis of the Choctaw Nation, was named for a respected Choctaw, Captain Atoka, who led a band of his people here during the "Trail of Tears" in the 1830's.
