This is the burial site of Chief Fred Lookout and his wife, Julia. The memorial site is located on top of Lookout Mountain and marked with a 10-foot-tall granite stone. The scenic overlook has a 360-degree panoramic view of Pawhuska, Bird Creek Valley and Osage County. “View is spectacular. You can almost see into heaven.”
