History

A post office operated in Cottonwood from March 3, 1882 to June 15, 1909. The area that became Coal County, including Sequoyah, became part of Cherokee Nation in 1829. Between the Civil War and Oklahoma Statehood in 1907, Cottonwood was populated primarily by white intruders who had illegally entered Cherokee Nation.
