It’s your chance to step back in time and experience life in the early 20th century. This 26-room Neo-Classical home was built in 1909. Afterward, we move on to Woolaroc Museum and Wildlife Preserve, also created by Frank Phillips. While here, you will find an 1840s mountain man camp, the Woolaroc Animal Barn. Here you might see a herd of buffalo roaming across the prairie. You will also have time at the museum with a unique display of Western art and artifacts. Native American pottery, baskets, beads, blankets, and much more await. We spend the remainder of the day at the Buffalo Days Festival at Old West Buffalo Company, celebrating National Bison Day.
