101 Ranch of Oklahoma Territory
One of our readers back in 2001 sent us this panorama image of the 101 Ranch. It is a beautiful vintage panoramic photo from the National Archives.
The picture is a view of the farm buildings, residences, ranch hands, farm machinery, and animals at the 101 ranch in Oklahoma, between Ponca City and Perry. The ranch was owned by the Miller family. The photographer and date are unknown. The dimensions are 54x10.
The Spirits of the 101 Ranch . . . There were dozens of abandoned homes and ranches scattered throughout the state of Oklahoma and just a few miles south is a place where only memories, crumbling foundations and maybe a few ghost still remain. Forgotten here is what remains of the famous 101 Ranch and the three-story stucco house that was known throughout the state as the Whitehouse. For those who don't know, the 101 Ranch was sort of a headquarters for the cowboys who made up the Oklahoma show business contingent of the early 1900's.
