Dan Bass made the 1893 run on horseback, into the Cherokee Strip to found D.C. Bass & Sons Construction Company, and we are still running strong. Since that pioneering start, Bass Construction Company's exclusive involvement in general construction has made us the oldest General Contractor in the seven state area of Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Kansas, Texas, Colorado, and New Mexico. We are actively one of the oldest contractors west of the Mississippi River.
In 1960, Bass Construction Company and H.B. Bass were inducted into the National Builders Hall of Fame at Pepperdine University.
