Among the array of colorful Oklahoma characters, few equal the stature of William “Billy” Washington of Love County fame, whose story is worthy of a Hollywood movie. For 40 years, from about 1880 until 1920, Washington was a dominating force from Red River to the Arbuckle Mountains, as he amassed a huge herd of cattle, a great fortune, and not a few enemies. Today, the heart of his great empire is on the market as the 470-acre Whitmire Ranch, the centerpiece of which is an 8500-square foot mansion known as “The Cattleman’s Castle,” built in 1888 and now on the National Register of Historic Places.
