The Choctaw Welcome Center is located just off U.S. Hwy 69/75 Northbound from Texas into Oklahoma. Stop here for free coffee, travel information, clean restrooms and unique Choctaw gifts and souvenirs made by Choctaw Artisans.
Outside is a life size replica of a Choctaw Hut and a traditional grass Arbor.
You will see a large tree out front of the Center. This historic tree is known as the “Message Tree” and back in the day, when travelers were passing through this area, they would nail a message onto this large tree for the next traveler or for a specific person.
