Chickasaw Capitol, Tishomingo, Oklahoma

14 Sep

If you drive far enough north on the 377 you will find yourself in Tishomingo, Oklahoma.  We were driving south however from the Ada area headed home taking, as we always do, the back road.  Driving along the 69 is such a hassle since it is one of the main thouroghfares through the state particularly on the east side.  And state troopers are out everywhere especially holiday weekends.  With that, the roads we spent time driving on were two lane most of the way but look what you find! 

The roads along this route on the 377/99 are rather amusing.    Blue Church Road on the west side, Seeley Church Road on the east side.  Buzzard Road, Tower Road, New York Road, Devils Den Road.  I like random names like this.  And yes, we did see churches along the way.  What we did not see was them filled up that Sunday evening although I did argue that it may have been the time of evening;  5 p.m. 6 p.m., etc. that people gather.  Regardless, people should be in church.  We should be stuck in rush hour traffic in those small towns on a Sunday night.

A little bit about this beautiful structure can be found on the Official Site of the Chickasaw Nation.

    They lost 3 churches in Buxton, NC after hurricane Irene. The people there are fortunate to have lived but not so fortunate with their possessions.

    The beloved S-turns in Hatteras got split into three different parts as the sound crossed into the ocean.

    The s-turns is (perhaps was) the best place to surf on the entire east coast.

    Nice shot. I love these posts!

    I didn’t even know people went to churches in the evening.

    I just joined a new church and one of the criteria I use to pick a church is whether they hold Sunday evening services. This one does although I have to say that the turnout in the evenings is quite small even considering that it is a small church to begin with. Lovely Picture!
