Grand Lake O’ The Cherokees

These colorful brochures and maps were handed out to lake-goers in the late 1940s. This huge lake — 1,300 miles of shoreline — provides recreation and hydroelectric power for the region. Flirtatious bathers look out while playing in the water. The inside of the brochure are packed with ads for lake services and tourist stops. The Buffalo Ranch was once a must-see along Route 66 and the Grand Lake area. It’s simple advertisement gives a clue to what the Ranch featured.
