A lottery drew the lucky numbers of this city's settlers, and oil made it into the thriving cultural center it is today. In Ponca City you will discover a way to honor the brave women who settled Oklahoma at the Pioneer Woman Statue and Museum. Tour the Italian "Palace on the Prairie," the Marland Mansion, which was built by oil baron and Governor E.W. Marland. Dig deep into the city's oil history at the Conoco Museum, honor Native roots at the Standing Bear Museum & Park or go green with a tour of the Cann Memorial Gardens.
