The Perryman Ranch was established before Oklahoma statehood and is the Creek allotment of Mose S. Perryman, son of Tulsa's "first family," George and Rachel Perryman, who helped name Tulsa. The ranch is a working ranch owned by Monetta Trepp, granddaughter of Mose Perryman. As a child, Monetta spent summers at the ranch with her grandmother, Lulu Perryman, widow of Mose. Tulsa's first post office is located at the ranch house.
The Perryman Ranch, established 1898 by tribal allotment deed to Mose Perryman, preserves 80-acres of the family ranch started by Mose's father, George Perryman. From the U.S. Civil War until allotment, the ranch stretched from Mounds to Chouteau, including over 250,000 acres of grazing range.
The ranch on Elwood Avenue is just south of Jenks. It is visible from the main road with the always-present white buffalo statue. Many people visit the banquet hall and ranch house to see the real white buffalo that makes his home here. His name is YvnvssvHetke (Creek for White Buffalo).
