The ROGERS COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY (RCHS) is a non-profit organization of community volunteers dedicated to preserving the heritage and landmarks of Rogers County, including Claremore, Verdigris, Oologah, Foyil, Inola,  and Chelsea.  These are unique to the history of Indian Territory, Oklahoma statehood, and our modern history.

The RCHS has been instrumental in restoring the historic Will Rogers Hotel, an instantly recognizable Claremore landmark; care-taking the Totem Pole Park in Chelsea; managing the Lynn Riggs Memorial housed in the Claremore History Museum on the site of the old library; and restoring and operating the beautiful Belvidere Mansion, its tea room, museum and giftshop.

Historical Society meetings are scheduled the last Monday of each month at 7 pm (except for December). These meetings are open to the public and feature a variety of speakers who discuss topics of local and/or historic interest.  Guests are welcomed and cordially invited.

We invite you to JOIN the Rogers County Historical Society, visit our FACEBOOK pages, and check out the other pages on our website to keep current with the latest Rogers County Historical Society happenings.  

Thank you for visiting.
