TISHOMINGO, Okla. (AP) - Chickasaw Nation officials have broken ground on a new tribal information center in Tishomingo, the tribe’s historic capital.

Chickasaw Nation Gov. Bill Anoatubby says the information center will serve as a gateway for the many attractions within the Chickasaw Nation, including the Chickasaw Capitol Building and Council House Museum, the Chickasaw White House, Tishomingo National Wildlife Refuge and Blue River.

The 10,700-square-foot center will house the Chickasaw Nation Tourism Department, tribal Office of Special Events, the Johnston County Chamber of Commerce and Johnston County Historical Society.

Almost 3,000 square feet of the building will be dedicated to tourism promotion, with kiosks filled with information about the Chickasaw Nation and the Tishomingo area.

The tribe is also building other facilities in Tishomingo, including a new Senior Center and Head Start facility.
