I'm constantly suprised that people are not aware of all Osage County and Pawhuska has to offer. It's a wonderland of nature and culture. From Osage Hills State Park to the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve, working cowboys, steer ropings and Native American Culture, this area has so much to offer. A trip on the Osage Scenic Byway from Hominy, to Fairfax then back to Pawhuska gives the visitor a real taste of the area.
On any given day you will see working cowboys in downtown Pawhuska buying supplies at Osage Outfitters, visit the bison at Tallgrass Prairie Perserve (the largest tallgrass prairie in the world!) or puruse the goods at Spurs & Arrows or Cliftons in Pawhuska. Wild mustangs graze in the rolling hills as red tail hawks soar overhead.
This weekend is even more amazing in Pawhuska as the Tulsa Rocket Club joins us at Pawhuska Airport (yes we have one). Rockets all day Saturday and Sunday with a night rocket launch at 8:30 on Saturday night. Is that not enough? Visit Red Roan Arena to watch steer roping west of town and enjoy Wick's cafe.
Of course, come by Tallgrass Art Gallery to get your dose of Western and Wildlife Art as well as watch a working traditional silversmith in our window.
St. Louis THINKS they are the gateway to the West, but ask anyone in The Osage and we'll tell you that Pawhuska is the gateway to the REAL West!
