NOTICE - PAWNEE BILL MANSION WILL CLOSE 8.13.2018 FOR REPAIRS SUFFERED IN AN EARTHQUAKE. ANTICIPATED RE-OPENING LATE JUNE-EARLY JULY, 2019.
THE MUSUEM AND ALL OTHER RANCH STRUCTURES REMAIN OPEN.
No other Oklahoman exemplified "The Wild West" like Gordon W. Lillie (Pawnee Bill). In 1888, after working in the Buffalo Bill Wild West Show, he formed his own "Wild West Show" and traveled all over the world recreating life in the "Wild West". In 1908 his show combined with Buffalo Bill's to form "The Two Bills' Show".
In 1910 Pawnee Bill built his dream home, a fourteen room arts and crafts style bungalow complete with modern conveniences such as hot and cold running water, electricity and steam heat, one of the first in the area. Pawnee Bill’s fully furnished mansion remains today as it was when he and his wife, Mae, lived there.
On the grounds of this 500 acre ranch see the original log cabin, a 1903 blacksmith shop, a large barn and an Indian Flower Shrine. Roaming the grounds visitors can see the four-legged residents of the Pawnee Bill Ranch, draft horses, bison and longhorn cattle; perhaps they’ll join you as you picnic in one of the covered shelters.
This family fun attraction open year round in Pawnee and can be rented for meetings, reunions and weddings. Pawnee Bill's Wild West Show is proudly recreated each June.
