A grand new second chance.
Our story is Oklahoma’s story.
When Ketchum was originally established in 1899, it was about a mile southwest of its current location along a wagon trail on what was then the Grand River. Until the Grand River Dam was created in the area, Ketchum’s primary resource was corn, cotton, and other grains. Now with Ketchum’s original town site deep under the Grand Lake O’ The Cherokees, that same lake brought new life to the town – in the form of tourism and lake-related businesses.
