Dwight Mission

Dwight Mission, IT

Dwight Mission, located on Sallisaw Creek in 1830, is the oldest school in the State of Oklahoma, although Union Mission was established at an earlier date. Named in honor of the Rev. Timothy Dwight of Yale University, the mission has added luster to the name by the great educational work accomplished among the Cherokee Indians.

This is yet another mission school our part Cherokee ancestors had something to do with.
