Dewey, Oklahoma

Originally part of the Cherokee Nation, little Dewey came into being when a neighboring businessman from Bartlesville moved his general store and built a hotel here. The village was put on the map for oil drilling and a popular rodeo. Dewey is still a draw for western culture, as famous cowboy movie star Tom Mix figures prominently in this town which offers a museum in his honor. Be sure to check out the wild horses maintained by the government along Bison Road at the Prairie National Wild Horse Refuge.
