Sallisaw

Sallisaw is located in eastern Oklahoma in Sequoyah County (of which it is the county seat) east of Oklahoma City along U.S. Highway 59 and just north of Interstate 40.

The town offers several recreational opportunities in nearby Brushy Creek State Park, Sallisaw State Park and Robert S. Kerr Lake as well as the Arkansas River. In addition, Blue Ribbon Downs, Oklahoma's first pari-mutual race track is open on weekends.

Area attractions include the Sequoyah's Home Site. Sequoyah was the Cherokee who gained world-wide fame for creating the Cherokee Nation's syllabary. This is also the burial place of the gangster "Pretty Boy" Floyd. Also of interest are the Fourteen Flags Museum and the Dwight Prebyterian Mission.

The population estimate for July 1, 1998 was 7,910, an increase of 788 since 1990.
