Wheelock Academy in Millerton (southeast OK) From Wikipedia: Wheelock Academy was the model academy for the five civilized tribes' academies. It was started as a missionary school for Choctaw girls, and is still owned by the Choctaw nation. In 1832 the Academy was initiated by Alfred Wright, a physician and missionary who co-founded the nearby Wheelock Church. It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1965. Photo by Rich Baim
