Long known as a health spa because of the artesian mineral wells in the area, Claremore is also home to the J.M. Davis Arms and Historical Museum, one of the largest of its kind, with thousands of firearms. The area's most popular attractions, however, have to do with legendary humorist Will Rogers. The Will Rogers Memorial Museum in Claremore has dioramas and artifacts related to his life and career, as well as clips from his many films. Rogers' grave is located on the museum grounds. You can also visit his birthplace in nearby Oologah: The home has been preserved and filled with memorabilia. The Will Rogers Stampede Rodeo takes place in June, and the Bluegrass and Chili Festival is held in early September. 130 mi/210 km northeast of Oklahoma City.
