When John Fenton Pratt started building Cottonwood Ranch in 1885, he had no idea that it would someday tell the story of his family.  The ranch, located in the South Solomon River Valley near the small town of Studley, in northwestern Kansas, has persevered time.

Visitors experience history...when they tour the ranch in its near unchanged Kansas prairie setting.  Besides stepping back in time as one wanders through and between the ranch buildings, including the house, the ever widening Kansas landscape stretches to the horizons.


Pratt’s photo collection, stained glass windows and examples of  architecture, provide an opportunity to learn about Pratt  the businessman and sheep rancher, his family, other ranchers and their lives.
