The Mercedes-Benz Ozark Section will be heading to Claremore, Oklahoma on March 21, 2020, to visit the Will Rogers Memorial Museum and have lunch at the J. Farley’s Pub. We will also invite the Eastern Oklahoma Section. Will Rogers was America’s cowboy philosopher. He was born William Penn Adair Rogers on November 4, 1879, during the civil war, in a log-walled, seven-room house along the Verdigris River, on an Indian reservation. This was later call Oologah, Oklahoma. The incredible museum stands on the top of the hill in Claremore, Oklahoma, in his honor. You can also drive to Oologah, Oklahoma to visit the birthplace ranch, 9501 E. 380 Road, Oologah, Oklahoma. Prior to the visiting the museum we will have lunch at the J. Farley’s Pub at 11:30 a.m. The pub was established by Chris Hayes and James Franklin, in memory of their dear friend and fire fighter, Jason Farley, who lost his life in a flood while on duty. This pub has an array of great dishes to choose from. Their private room has been reserved for us. After leaving the museum, and on our way home, you may want to stop in Chouteau, Oklahoma at the Amish Cheese House, Highway 69 South. They have a variety of cheeses, meats, jellies, spices, soups, kitchen items; the list goes on! However, they also have a best ice cream!! .
