  • Once the home of Chickasaw Gov. Douglas H. Johnston, the Chickasaw White House still lives up to one of its names: the mansion on the frontier. During Johnston’s 36-year tenure, he remained dedicated to his family and would help his children craft kites to enjoy on the property.

MILBURN, Okla. -- The Chickasaw Nation will celebrate Independence Day with the community by hosting the Fourth of July Celebration beginning 4 p.m., Friday, June 30 at the Chickasaw White House, 6379 East Mansion Drive.

The event is open to the public at no cost and will include food, drinks, games and an outdoor movie.

Summertime favorites like hot dogs, chips, watermelon, lemonade, cake and homemade ice cream will be served.

Across the White House grounds, attendees will play volleyball, race in burlap sacks, toss horseshoes and throw water balloons. There will also be a balloon release and kites to fly.

A movie on the lawn, “Monster Trucks,” will begin 8:30 p.m. In the 2016 live-action comedy, high school student Tripp Coley finds an escaped monster living in his truck.
