These places are unique to the history of Indian Territory, Oklahoma statehood, and our modern history. The RCHS has been instrumental in past restoration efforts of the Old Will Rogers Library, now the Claremore Museum of History where the Lynn Riggs Memorial is housed, and the Will Rogers Hotel on Historic Route 66.
