"Beaver, Oklahoma - in the midst of "No Man's Land"" Beaver by basstbn

Beaver Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 24 photos

Welcome

My title (in the midst of "No Man's Land") makes Beaver, Oklahoma, sound like a pretty foreboding place. Actually, it's far from that. Although there was a time in our history when nobody wanted this area - not the Indians, not the settlers, nor the US government, it's not really a bad place at all. Remote, granted, and small and without the so-called "conveniences" of larger cities, but still not a bad place to live. Furthermore, Beaver bills itself as "The Cow Chip Capital of the World." You have to appreciate a place that's not too uptight to take on a title like that.

And for a number of my wife's kinfolk, it was a grand place for a family reunion. Why here? Because her great-grandfather homesteaded in Beaver County 100 years ago in 1906.

As for the welcome sign in the photo, there's not usually a bunch of Nancy's relatives, including your's truly, striking silly poses - unless it's part of a group ice-breaker game at a family reunion!

    Glad to see Beaver represented here on VT. I was through there just last week. Stopped for lunch and took a hike at Beaver Dunes State Park.
