Wichahpi Commemorative Stone Wall tells a beautiful story about a man who built this wall in the memory of Te-lah-nay - his great-great-grandmother. It will take you to the 1800s when a young woman from Yuchi Indian tribe was sent to Oklahoma and how she chose to return home. Tom Hendrix had to spent around 30 years to erect this stone wall and it has become a unique way of honoring his ancestors. Take a walk in this area and see an unfolding story that represents history.
Wichahpi Commemorative Stone Wall Reviews & Ratings
Nice time seeing a little griffen treasure of history. Had no idea we were near this. Rode past it one day, went back and it was closed. My husband researched it and we went back when the history was being told by a descendant. Neat story made more to life by hearing it from a descendant.
This place is amazing. The story of Tom Hendrix's great, great, great grandmother is inspiring (and heartbreaking). It was so touching to see the heart and soul Tom put into building this tribute to her. And heartwarming to see the momentos that visitors have added over time. It's almost totally in the shade so on a hot day it's comfortable in the shade. There are a couple of spots to sit down (he made stone benches). Allow time for a peaceful stroll and also the opportunity to speak with the family members. On the day we went, Tom's son Trace was there to share stories and answer questions. You park across the street on the right side of the road.
Interesting place for a quick stop. A great story. A must on your bucket list!
First time. It's amazing what one man accomplished for his ancestors. A work of art!!
This is a great place to visit, just make sure it's not raining. We couldn't go through the whole place. It's so amazing. We will go back again. Also there's been some Males that's been damaging and throwing things, this isn't a nice thing to do. The man that worked so hard and long placed the stone's for his family and visitors to enjoy is not right for others to try to destroy something that isn't for them to destroy. You know who you are you need to be spanked with a belt.
