Big V Ranch

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the headquarters of the Big V Ranch was completed in 1903 by Bill & Viola Vanselous & restored in 2007, by their descendents. Vanselous, who staked a claim in the Cherokee Strip Land Run, was the largest mule dealer in the US at the turn of the century, including providing mules to the British Army. The six acre facility includes the headquarters, refurbished mule barn, rebuilt commissary gardens, chicken house, tool building, oil pumping units & surrey house. The 1000-acre working farm includes cattle & small grain operations and offers amazing barn weddings! Private Reservations only.
