The O'Keefe Ranch is an historic ranch and associated ghost town located in the Okanagan region of British Columbia, Canada on the Canadian National Railway, just northwest of Vernon.[1] The town was founded in 1867 by Cornelius O'Keefe. Cornelius was a cattleman who became known as "the O'Keefe of Okanagan." He was an Irishman whose ranch was an early center of trade in the Okanagan. The town later contained a general store, Roman Catholic church, and a post office.[2]
