Picher is a ghost town and former city in Ottawa County, Oklahoma, United States. Much of the land was originally owned by the Quapaw after Indian removal.
In the early 20th century, mining took place initially under federal
leases of these lands but the Quapaw did not receive a fair share of
royalties and were generally excluded from the thousands of mining jobs
in the region. In 2000 they comprised a significant minority of the
population in the city. This was a major national center of lead and zinc mining at the heart of the Tri-State Mining District.
