Burney Institute


The Burney Institute was authorized to be built by the Chickasaw Council in 1854 as a girls’ school. It later became an orphanage for the Chickasaw’s. In 1914, the building was sold to a private owner and used as a barn for 90 years until it was transferred back to the Native Americans. After the transfer, the Burney Institute was restored by PandDStudio working with BLW Architects and Obelisk Engineering.
