Downtown Oakley offers some great outdoor photo ops to remember your visit. The Jamboree grocery store’s mural covers two walls and tells some of the history or our town and conveys the pioneering spirit of those who settled the plains in the 1800’s – depicted by the Plainsmen school mascot. The Monument Rocks Silhouette, on the wall of the Farm and Home True Value, was painted by the art students at Oakley high school.
You’ll also want to visit the Fick Fossil Museum for an art display you won’t see anywhere else in the world. Museum namesake, Vi Fick, collected thousands of fossils and created one-of-a kind funky folk art, multi-media art that is displayed year-round in the museum
Here at the BBCC, the twice life-size bronze sculpture of Buffalo Bill on his horse in pursuit of a buffalo is available to view 24/7 365 days a year. Dedicated in 2004, you must walk up to appreciate the size and detail of the sculpture by Charlie and Pat Norton of Leoti, Kanasa.
