NSU Tahlequah

12/18/2018 (Permalink)

According to Northeastern State University's website, built in 1889, the Northeastern State University Seminary Hall is the oldest building on campus. Northeastern State University was originally founded in 1851 as the Cherokee National Female Seminary. The original school was located in Park Hill, but was destroyed by a fire on Easter Sunday in 1887. Two years later, the school was rebuilt in Tahlequah where it remains to this day.

Some believe that the NSU Seminary Hall is haunted. There have been strange reports of photographed orbs, puzzling sounds and odd smells. Others claim to have seen a female ghost wearing either a black uniform or white wedding gown. Some believe it is the ghost of Florence Wilson, a principal who spent 26 years at the Cherokee National Female Seminary. Wilson's fiancée, Pleasant Buchanan, was thought to have perished in the Civil War, and Wilson never married. Some believe she never left the school.

But according to those at SERVPRO Muskogee/McIntosh Counties, Pleasant is there to provide company during the long and lingering hours of work that our crews put in. Our crews work for and with all clients living or deceased and will give you a story to tell about how scarily clean and restored your property was when we left. Who else to trust your historic buildings and properties with if not SERVPRO Muskogee/McIntosh Counties.

Muskogee Public Schools are relocating their professional development building from the historic downtown Best Center to the new location in Country Club at MPS’s old Harris Jobe facility.

Our teams worked tirelessly on various projects throughout the entire facility to help the school board prepare for their move across town.

SERVPRO Muskogee/McIntosh Counties & Tahlequah assisted in general cleaning support from carpet cleaning (Muskogee’s Best of 2018) and mopping floors to cleaning light fixtures, dusting, wet wipe surface areas, wash windows, change out ceiling tiles, content manipulation which can sometimes include a pack-out/pack-in.

SERVPRO Muskogee/McIntosh Counties & Tahlequah does Emergency Ready Plans for all commercial and government facilities including schools and hospitals. We can also give these plans to your local first responders and property owners and managers. This is an exclusive offer from your area SERVPRO. 

Little Tank Big Damage

12/18/2018 (Permalink)

Who would have thought that this little tank would have flooded multiple rooms in a local Tahlequah church causing the loss of carpets, flood cuts in the dry wall, and the loss of various other flooring materials from the multiple rooms. The flood destroyed flooring, walls, and the cost of time from personnel to mitigate the situation.

Fortunately, SERVPRO Muskogee & McIntosh Counties and Tahlequah was called to the scene to provide emergency mitigation services. We are glad to be a part of the Tahlequah Emergency Family. We were able to help, not only emergency mitigate the situation but dry and prep the church’s facility for any construction that needed to be done so they could resume church services at their regularly scheduled times. Thanks 29/11 for turning to us in your time of need.

A Year to Remember

After much invariably bad publicity for multiple housing issues, when local college, Bacone, took on new leadership one of their first moves was to call on a leader in the industry, SERVPRO. Bacone’s new leadership didn’t wait for a disaster to call SERVPRO they wanted to start the new 2018-2019 school year off right by allowing us to get involved in the beginning with a General Cleaning. Our General Cleanings can be light or deep and  include carpet, tile, windows, or multiple other surfaces and content. We left the historic buildings, dorms, and classrooms clean, fresh, aromatic and ready for new students when they moved in last week. 

This was the first time that SERVPRO had the opportunity to lend its expertise to one of the oldest colleges in the nation. Bacone is the oldest Native American College in Oklahoma founded in 1880 and SERVPRO was glad to partner, handling the delicacy of this project with the utmost care.
