The Victorian style Belvidere Mansion was constructed by the Bayless Family in 1907. This three story 9,000 sq. ft. home includes a 1st floor Tea Room, Gift Shop, foyer, bathroom and kitchen. The Belvidere's 2nd floor contains three historically furnished living quarters, a bathroom and office. The 3rd floor is a spacious 3,200 sq. ft. ballroom, which makes a wonderful destination spot for weddings, or special events, providing a scenic view the City of Claremore.
The Belvidere resides within the historic district of downtown Claremore, OK just off Route 66. The Bell Family became owners of the Belvidere from the 1930's to our modern time. The Rogers County Historical Society and friends became the owners and caretakers of the Belvidere Mansion in 1991.
