Day 2 – Old Buffalo Encounter – Pawhuska, Home of the Pioneer Woman
In Pawhuska this morning, enjoy the Old West Buffalo Encounter, a rip-roaring western adventure! Immerse yourself in the enthralling story of the American Buffalo. Be inspired by the small band of heroes who saved the buffalo from extinction and birthed the American conservation movement. Thrill in an up-close encounter with a herd in their natural environment as you hand-feed them from the safety of a hay wagon. Stroll along the boardwalk of Buffalo City, a fictional Old West town, taking advantage of unique photo ops. Pop into the Trading Post for one-of-a-kind mementos and some grass-fed meats.
Then meet your local guide and roam the Osage Hills around Pawhuska, Oklahoma. Enjoy the tallgrass prairie and much more! Your guide will retell history of the 1920’s oil boom, when the Osage Nation were the richest people in America. Hear stories of riches, historical buildings, famous cowboys, and learn of the Native Osage Culture. Discover why this little town has such big history! Background reading would be the best selling book “Killers of The Flower Moon,” soon to be a Leonardo DiCaprio movie.
Lunch is on your own today. You may want to sit down for a meal at Bad Brad’s Bar-B-Q joint or Grille 125 and enjoy Pawhuska’s combination—and celebration—of past, present, and future. You could also enjoy lunch at the Mercantile Deli.
This afternoon you visit the Pioneer Woman Mercantile, owned by Food Network TV show host Ree Drummond, aka The Pioneer Woman, this shop is a must-see destination. The Pioneer Woman Mercantile began in 1910 as Osage Mercantile and was a place for trading goods and browsing. Ree and family wanted to honor The Merc’s legacy by creating a shopping experience that hints to an earlier time in small town America. It takes time to see it all, so stop in and stay awhile!
Come explore the glorious cabinets, browse the abundant shelves, and peek in all the drawers! Shopping at The Merc is a treasure hunt, with surprises everywhere you turn. There is also a Deli and a Bakery where you can enjoy comfort food classics in the deli, to hand-crafted bakery items, the offerings are endlessly delicious.
