The series of pictures in this section are from the farm and ranch archives of the White Deer Land Museum. Farming was the first viable economic base of this area. The first boom of this area was when the first wheat harvests started coming in.
Cattle were introduced during the same time, and the fencing of the land was in full swing. Miles and miles of fence was strung. Some cowboys worked for years, doing nothing but fencing, six days a week.
The lure of this land was it cheap price, and the display of vegetables and fruit next to the railroad watering station, where men of the White Deer Land Company were trying to sell land to people traveling on the passenger trains.
Check out the pictures in the sections displayed on the left, and imagine youself living in the early days, with rich earth, plenty of water (underground), and lots of fresh air.
