Beef remains one of the Tuttle economy’s primary sources of strength, which is no surprise since Silver City/Tuttle was a favorite stop on the famed Chisolm Trail more than a century ago. Along the Chisholm Trail, cattlemen drove their herds from Texas ranches down south to Kansas railheads up north. These heifers grazing on wheat were captured by rancher Will Osborn, who enjoys photography while he’s working the land or feeding livestock on it. Will is the latest in a family of four generations of farmers and ranchers in the Tuttle area. This image and other agricultural scenes captured by the Osborns grace the walls of the Osborn home. This image was taken a couple of miles east of Tuttle.
The Tuttle Then and Now gallery displayed at the First National Bank & Trust Co. in Tuttle was designed to commemorate the people and places that make Tuttle unique. FNBT has been an independent community bank serving central and southwest Oklahoma since 1892.
