Welcome to Claremore, Oklahoma
Oklahoma’s favorite son Will Rogers said, “I think the time will come when everybody will be made to stop off at Claremore on their way to any place they may be going.”
The members of Claremore Chamber of Commerce welcome you to make that all important stop. The invitation is always open!
Will Rogers was always on target with his observations. If he were alive today we are sure he would remind us that “Folks make towns, not numbers.” It is the people, the citizens of Claremore, their hospitality, community pride, and dedication to the past and future that will always make “Claremore” a great place!!!
We think Will would continue to agree that Claremore folks and numbers remain impressive. Over the past decade Claremore has continued to experience growth rates that exceed state averages. Claremore and Rogers County both hold the distinction of being among the fastest growing areas in the state. The geographic location of Claremore and the easy accessibility from major highways, turnpikes, airports, rail systems and the proximity to the McClellar-Kerr Arkansas River Navigational System allows Claremore to be the gateway to beautiful northeast Oklahoma and beyond!
