Located near modern-day Ponca City, it was founded by Colonel George Washington Miller, a veteran of the Confederate Army, in 1893. The ranch was the birthplace of the 101 Ranch Wild West Show whose cast, over its history, included Lillian Smith, Bill Pickett, Bessie Herberg, Bee Ho Gray, Tom Mix, Jack Hoxie, Mexican Joe, Ross Hettan, and an elderly Buffalo Bill. It was also one of the early focal points of the oil rush in northeastern Oklahoma (the oil company initially formed went on to become today's ConocoPhillips). It was the largest diversified farm and ranch in America at the time. Bill Pickett's grave and the White Eagle Monument are located on the ranch grounds. (Image 1) 150
