The 1931 Historic Franklin Castle is an architectural gem that rests high on a ridge with a commanding view of Tahlequah, Oklahoma

The Chapel of the Franklin Castle was remodeled and repurposed in 2017. Its indoor-outdoor flexibility and simply elegant details give full complement to the integrity of the main Castle. The combination of these two properties promises Intimacy, romance, end charm for every celebration. The Franklin Castle is the perfect setting for weddings, receptions, reunions, company or club meetings, retreats, or private gatherings. The warm and inviting interior is cozy 2,500 square feet featuring a full kitchen for cooking on-site or catering, bridal staging space upstairs, groom gathering areas downstairs, family grouping space on the main floor, and an outdoor patio and courtyard


The Chapel of the Franklin Castle is a spacious 1,250 square feet with a garden and gazebo area.

Three large carriage doors can open to stone-paved terrace spaces for additional seating or an outdoor atmosphere. Attached to the Chapel is a large patio overlooking the beautiful town branch creek and is particularly coveted as the perfect reception space. On the day of your event, every area of the Franklin Castle and Chapel are open to you and your guests. Tents and canopies are welcome, should you desire.

Our dedicated staff can help with coordination and local planning needs – rentals, bakeries, photographers, videographers, catering options, overnight accommodations, and even gift boutiques. We are eager to play host to your most special day!


Weddings & receptions are ideal, as are company meetings, or private parties. Its outdoor patio and courtyard are well served with a full-service heating/serving kitchen.
