Tishomingo, Oklahoma

The town of Tishomingo was very peaceful today as the Chickasaw Festival has ended and the hoards of people had left. We enjoyed the day walking around town and checking out the sights.

Main Street, Tishomingo, OK

This beautiful building was built in 1898 out of red granite from the Pennington Creek quarry of Governor R.M. Harris. The building was sold to Johnston County in 1910 and was used as the Johnston County Courthouse. It is now the Chickasaw Nation Museum.

We might have also done a drive by of Blake Shelton’s ranch, but still no sighting. I think he must be out of town for the long weekend or I’m sure he would have been in touch when he heard we were in town 🙂

We also had dinner at Blake’s new restaurant and gift shop in Tishomingo, they had their grand opening last weekend. What was once the Pink Pistol, Miranda Lambert’s shop, is now the Red Rifle … love the humour!   In order to continue supporting his hometown Blake has opened up the Ole Red restaurant and gift shop in the building he has now named the Red Rifle. The food and service were great and although Blake didn’t show up to do an impromptu show, which I read he occasionally does, we had a great time.

Until next time …

  1. Blake also has a bar opening up next year in Nashville and yes he didn’t show up there either we (I) was hoping Blake would be there . Ole Red is from one of his songs and th e name of his new bar in Nashville

    • I know!!! I’m sure he would have been in touch if he knew I was in town. When you and I stalked Bruce Boxleitner he was happy to meet with us so I’m sure Blake would have been happy to meet with me if he was in town 😊
