Significance: The cabin of Dr. Irvin D. Leoder is the oldest building in Tahlequah, and one of the two or three oldest buildings in the state of Oklahoma. During and after the Civil War the cabin, which was considerably larger at that time, was an important place of refuge for persons who had been displaced by the incessant clash of Union and Confederate detachments in the area. Its first known owner, Dr. Leoser, was one of the few doctors in the Indian Territory, and at times was the only doctor in Tahlequah.
