I took this pic in the winter. This is a photo of The Whipping Tree. It STILL stands on the courthouse lawn today.
This is where the Seminoles punished their criminals prior to 1907. When a criminal was apprehended, he was brought before the Court and if found guilty of a minor crime, was sentenced to twenty-five lashes across the bare back with a six-foot hickory switch. If the prisoner was tried for a second offense, the punishment was doubled. If it was a major crime such as murder, the punishment was death by a firing squad. In such case, the offender was allowed to go free on his word that he would return in time for his punishment. .

Favorite thing: Visit during the Sorghum days festival! It is the 3rd Saturday in October annually. Very interesting to watch them make Sorghum!
Wewoka is a very nice small town in central Oklahoma, the proverbial roll up the streets at night place. Although I don't live there, I visit often. .
