Recently we took a day trip to the Will Rogers Memorial & Museum in Claremore, Oklahoma. If you are from or live in Oklahoma, this is a must see place for you. Will Rogers was a cowboy, entertainer, and humorist. He is probably the most quoted "Okie" in history. Will was born November 4, 1879 in Indian Territory near Oologah, Oklahoma. He died August 15, 1935 in a private plane crash in Alaska. Will was 1/4 Cherokee native American. The memorial/museum celebrates his life on 20 acres of land in Claremore that Rogers purchased with the intent of building a home when he retired.
