Bathsheba

One of the truly unique ghost towns in Oklahoma, Bathsheba was established as a type of Utopia for women. No males were allowed in the colony--no stallions, bulls, rams or roosters.

This idealistic society had about 35 founding members but a dozen left after the first week. Because this was a short-lived venture it is difficult, if not impossible, to pinpoint its location but best estimates put it in north central Oklahoma somewhere between Enid in Garfield County and Perry in Noble County.
