Homesteading in Harper County

Bluff City

The town site was platted on November 20, 1886, and by the end of December, there were 200 families in residence. The railroad built a roundhouse and shops which later were moved to Anthony. Once the Cherokee Strip opened and the buildings were moved, the town's decline was imminent.

The ethnicity of its settlers is unknown.
