Tribe opens center

Davis —  

Travelers along Interstate 35 in south-central Oklahoma now have a new place to stop, shop and stretch. Chickasaw Nation Gov. Bill Anoatubby and other officials took part in a ribbon-cutting ceremony to open the Chickasaw Nation Welcome Center and Bedré Fine Chocolates retail store. Both venues are located at the southwest corner of I-35 and state Highway 7 at exit 55 in Murray County.

Anoatubby said the new welcome center continues the Nation’s strategic tourism effort that includes major projects in Davis, Sulphur, Chickasha and Thackerville areas.

“This welcome center is the gateway for many family-friendly attractions and cultural destinations in south-central Oklahoma,” said Anoatubby. “This is an excellent location for us to share the heritage of the Chickasaw people as well as to create an educational experience and a comfortable, inviting spot to take a break for the thousands who travel along I-35 each day.”
