RCHS has purchased and is in the process of continuing to restore the Victorian-era Belvidere Mansion, which houses many historical artifacts and genealogically historic records.
In 1994 the historic Will Rogers Hotel, an instantly recognizable
Claremore landmark, was purchased by RCHS for $1 at auction to save it
from being demolished.
RCHS oversees the care-taking of the Totem Pole Park in Chelsea and manages the Lynn Riggs Memorial.
The latest project involves the opening of the
Claremore Museum of History, located in the former Lynn Riggs Memorial building, at the site of the old library.
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 or historic interest. Guests are welcomed and cordially invited.
