Old Will Rogers Library


category : Historic Buildings
The Old Will Rogers Library is now occupied by the City of Claremore. A year before his death, Will Rogers donated his lots in downtown Claremore with the understanding that they were to be sold to the government for a post office site, and the money from the proceeds of this sale to be used to build a city library. After his tragic death, the family allowed the structure to be named for him as a tribute to his unselfishness and community spirit.
