Default Perry, OK information

Looking at buying a ranch outside of Perry. Anyone familiar with this part of Oklahoma? I would like the location since it's close to OSU so my son could attend. Would appreciate any feedback on the area.

Perry, is a rather stagnant, laid back town. It's probably best known for the Ditch Witch manufacturing plant. It's also known as the place where OKC bomber Timothy McVey was first jailed after being arrested on I-35 near Perry. It's rather pretty around Perry with some trees but is in the area of Oklahoma were things really start becoming flat as a ruler and treeless as you go west. It's rather pretty country east of Perry and probably easier to find land with a pond or creek.

Thanks for the info. Would you recommend any place east of Perry that's pretty and would be within a hour's drive of Stillwater?

I agree with laid-back, but I'm not sure about stagnant. Hate to tell StillwaterTownie, but towns smaller than Enid or Stillwater don't usually "flourish".

South out of Perry, before you get to Stillwater, is pretty hilly, and very pretty I think. Tulsa is about an hour away, if you want a big city. Minor detail- Highway from Tulsa to Stillwater is a toll road. Looking at a ranch, though, Perry is probably a good choice. Most of the land along Highway 177 (Ponca to Stillwater) is agricultural, more ag support towards Stillwater, though.

Default Perry

Igloo,
It depends upon what you are looking for in a town. I grew up in Perry. It is a nice, but small town with decent schools. The people in Perry are very friendly and there are churches of just about every flavor. Morrison is a smaller town to the east but closer to Stillwater. Guthrie is a nice town about 30 minutes from Stillwater. It is quite a bit larger than Perry and has a lot of neat historical and cultural points of interest. Good luck!
