Pioneer Woman

Pawhuska, OK has transformed into a fun destination primarily because of the Ree and Ladd Drummond family. Ree, aka the Pioneer Woman, has made quite a name for herself due in large part to her famous TV show. While in Pawhuska you will have time to visit “The Merc” and shop at this gorgeous store and restaurant. Lunch will be at your choice of the many options available in town. The town has blossomed so there are plenty of small shops to explore. If the Lodge where Ree films her show happens to be open we will drive out and see the ranch & Lodge. Pawhuska has maintained their rich history by keeping their downtown buildings intact. Eighty-six of their 98 downtown buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
