Welch, Ok is known far and wide as Welch Cow Town, a quaint small town of about 500+ people who would give you the shirt off their back if you needed it.   They are private people but come together as a community of the town folks and folks from the vast ranch land surrounding the community anytime a family needs help paying a medical bill or recovering from a fire or whatever. They truly care about their neighbor, enjoy one of the best small schools to be found, and hold community events in the Welch Civic Auditorium where Johnny Cash once performed not once but twice.  Ronnie Dunn of Brooks and Dunn was married in the early 90’s at an estate about 4 miles out of town.  Welch is about 12 miles from Kansas, 40 miles or so from Joplin, Mo, and 90 mores or so from Tulsa, OK.  Grand Lake is only about 45 miles away to enjoy a day of fishing or boating, and soon will be only 22 miles or so from the planned Heartland Amusement Park out side the eastern edge of Vinita, OK.  You can enjoy with an easy drive a day in the city, a day on the lake, or soon a day at the amusement park and then get back to you peaceful, quiet, community of again the best people in God’s earth.

You can enjoy raising cattle or having enjoyment from horses at this prime location 49.11 acre ranch with again a beautiful stately 3 bed/3 full bath home that sits a just right distance from the highway going into Welch from the South.
