For hunters, the Beaver River Wildlife Management Area is abundant with deer, quail, pheasant and other game. Other hunting lodges are in the area as well.
A tour of Beaver reveals an impressive school system, library, hospital and nursing home as well as interesting and friendly shops. The area's history can be explored at the Jones and Plummer Trail Museum and the first church building in "No Man's Land"– the Presbyterian Church, c. 1887.
Each April during the Cimarron Territory Celebration, Beaver County hosts the World Cow Chip Throwing Championship Contest which draws international attention. The town’s mascot, "Big Beaver" resides prominently in the downtown area awaiting the next tourist’s snap of the camera lens! "Big Beaver" has been the subject of thousands of pictures and he is also a target in a geocache hunt for those that participate in that kind of adventure.
The economy is driven by the agriculture and oil and gas industry, as well as the new wind energy industry. We welcome any requests for information you may desire in your consideration of locating a business here. We hope you'll give our area a look and believe you'll find a charming community, rich in history and great people.
