101 Ranch

Believed to have derived its name from the 101,894 acres of the Ponca Reservation, this huge ranch was founded by George W. Miller and his sons in the early 1880s on land he leased, eventually purchased, or otherwise acquired from the Ponca Indians. The ranch became world famous for its Wild West show, oil wells, livestock, and farm products.

Located on OK-156, 1 mile north of Marland, Oklahoma
