The Rogers County Historical Society 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.
The Fall Old Home Tour is one of our oldest and most enduring fundraisers, first held in 1980. This year's tour has four gorgeous historic Claremore homes, all beautifully decorated, many with period antiques. The photo is of the Old Homestead, built circa 1909. This home is recognizable as the "house on the curve" visible on highway 20 on the way to Owasso from Claremore. Other homes include the Andersonville Cottage Bed and Breakfast, the Milam/Clark home with 2 acres of lush landscaped and terraced gardens, and the Haas/ Heiligman home which features in incredible water garden and historic antique furniture.
Tickets $12 include entry to all 4 homes, and available in advance and on the day of the tour at the Belvidere Mansion 121 N Chickasaw Ave Claremore, open Tuesday through Saturday 10am to 3pm. This year's home tour benefits the continued restoration and maintenance of the Belvidere Mansion. Tour is Saturday, October 8th from 10am-4pm. Maps and brochures describing the homes also available.
