The article focuses on the appearance of the remnants of the Indian nation's original Female Seminary school as part of the exhibit "Cherokee Female Seminary Exhibit" at the Cherokee Indian Heritage Center in Park Hill, Oklahoma. The history of the school dates back in 1847 and its teachers taught various subjects except home economics. The school is credited for contributing to the education of the Cherokee Nation. The Civil War led to the desertion of the school but was later opened and now serves as the Seminary Hall at Northeastern State University.
