Mrs. Mary Bayless (aka Christa Rice) will be visiting with guests at the Belvidere Mansion, Claremore, this Friday morning. Take a step back in time to August 1915 as Mrs. Bayless shares her story about growing up in Texas during the Civil War, removing to Cassville, Missouri, then moving with her husband, (entrepreneur, banker and railroad builder Mr. John Melville Bayless) and her children to Indian Territory in 1907. Discover how Mrs. Bayless, a dedicated Baptist woman, found the depths of her courage when tragedy struck. We invite you to hear Mrs. Bayless' story; enjoy listening to piano music of the early 1900s played by Mrs. Linda Rice; join us for lunch; then enjoy a walk through the historic Belvidere Mansion, Mrs. Bayless' home from 1907-1919.
