Big Pasture

Location of Marker: On U.S. Highway 70, in Grandfield, Tillman County.

Covering more than 488,000 acres in present-day Comanche, Cotton and Tillman counties, the Big Pasture was leased to various cattlemen under the direction of the Seccretary of the Interior. Owned by the Comanches and Kiowas, the area was opened to homestead settlers in 1906 by sealed bids.
