Just like its most prominent resident, Will Rogers, Claremore is a city that’s nothing short of charming. Honor Oklahoma’s favorite son with a trip to the Will Rogers Museum where you can explore 12 galleries full of manuscripts, photos, artifacts and an extensive saddle collection. Catch a new Will Rogers movie each day in the museum, then pay your respects at Will Rogers’ tomb, which is engraved with his famous quote: “I never met a man I didn’t like.” For an extra dose of history, visit the Claremore Museum of History or the J.M. Davis Arms & Historical Museum where you can browse the largest privately-owned firearms collection in the world.
When hunger strikes, head to the gorgeous Belvidere Mansion where you can dine at The Pink House on the first floor. This popular lunchtime favorite is sure to satisfy before a day of shopping Claremore’s many stores and boutiques in the historic downtown area.
Those looking for something a little different will find it at Shepherd’s Cross, an authentic working sheep farm set on 120 tranquil acres northeast of the city. Visitors are welcome year-round, although the farm really shines during the fall and winter during special events.
During the holidays, Claremore is transformed into a winter wonderland complete with Victorian street dances, living history window displays and festive wagon rides. Discover even more Claremore attractions and plan your trip to this hidden gem in Green Country.
