Welcome to Claremore… Clearly More!

Named for a towering & enlightened Chief, Claremore holds stories
of the Osage, the Cherokee and the Cowboy alike.

We have tales of the mighty railroad, the relaxation of the radium
baths, and the romance of America’s mother road, Route 66. Our
storytellers like Will Rogers and Lynn Riggs shared our humor with
the world, and made everyone fall in love with Oklahoma! Our
home.

At this point your day is just beginning.

We are a community of Museums, from the Will Rogers Memorial
Museum adorning the hill, to the turrets of the Belvidere Mansion,
from the stories of the Oklahoma Military Academy Museum at
Rogers State University and the Claremore Museum of History, to
the world’s largest privately owned gun collection at the JM Davis
Arms & Historical Museum.

There is much to explore!

From unique boutiques to rare antiques, from delicious diners
to tasty tea rooms, Claremore truly has a vibrant heart. Our first
class Performing Arts Center to our bustling Expo Center to our
NCAA college athletics, we are home to unique and exciting
entertainment.

Discover the place we call home!

Claremore, a place that still values community, is known for our
small town charm, great hospitality and friendly people. We treat
neighbors like family, and visitors like neighbors.

We hope you enjoy your visit and come back real soon!
