Hi. :) I'm new here, but I was just wondering if anyone else has ever seen that old, white farmhouse that's in Afton, OK. It's on the right side of the road as you're traveling towards Buffalo Ranch.
Thanks!

I've been through there a bunch of times but I just can't place it. Is it between Afton and the ranch?

Also, there's a cool section of original Route 66 going north out of Afton on the county road between Afton and the Buffalo Ranch. It's a nine-foot wide section of concrete curb and gutter roadway. It's really cool if you like that kind of stuff - I do.

If you know where Flying Cow Arena is, it's on that road... You just keep going straight, towards Buffalo Ranch, and then after you go over a small bridge, it's there on the right. Once you pass it there's a huge field on the same side of the road, and on the left there's a road leading a different way.

Awesome pictures, by the way!

I found it on google earth. It looks interesting. I doubt that I'll be up there anytime soon though.

We were out riding motorcycles around the lakes on July 4 so I stopped to check this out on the way home.

The upstairs wallpaper, ironic that it was Independence Day and the wallpaper had a Declaration of Independence theme:

Down the stair way, Lisa wouldn't come up. She was afraid it wouldn't hold.

Didn't see this until I was leaving:

Fun story.. I was up in Afton a few years back driving around looking for locations. I cant remember if it was this house or another in the area, but we pulled off the main road onto the side road to get some pictures. Before we could get out of the car, a big old guy with a beard down to his stomach came out of nowhere. He was running at our car with what looked like a hand gun. Turns out it was just a random tool. haha We just sat in our car waiting for him to get there. He questioned us as to why we were on his road, as said we really shouldn't be here. Not an overly friendly fellow...

I responded by saying "yeah, I'm sorry we'll leave. But I have to ask, can you tell me any of the history of this area?"

Boy did that lighten the mood! He started acting like our best friend! He told us all kinds of cool facts about the area and that the land had been in his family since statehood. He then directed us to an old one room school house that was on his property and let us look around that.

He also informed us that he had shot two people that had been trespassing in the house because they were having a party and trashed the place...

Moral of the story, always ask about the history of locations if you get caught!
