KEEPING IT IN THE FAMILY! This is the DAVIS HOUSE built in 1902, now the GABRIEL HOME, one of the premiere homes featured on the Rogers County Historical Society's OLD HOME TOUR 2015, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 10, 2015, 10am-4pm. This home is an extra special addition to this year's tour, since it was once the residence of George Decatur and Frances Bayless Davis. The Davises were a prominent banker family in Claremore in the early 1900s, and Frances was the oldest daughter of John Melville Bayless, builder of the Belvidere Mansion. So, you will get to experience, first hand, a little more of the Bayless story as the Gabriels share their beautiful home and hospitality. 

Tickets for the RCHS Old Home Tour are $12; children 10 years old and under are free with a paid adult ticket. Your ticket gives you the opportunity to tour inside four historic Claremore homes, the private Pepsi Cola Museum, plus enjoy a guided tour of the historic Belvidere Mansion. Call (918) 342-1127 for advanced sale tickets or buy your tickets on tour day at the Belvidere Mansion. Belvidere Mansion is located at 121 North Chickasaw Avenue, Claremore, Oklahoma. Proceeds from this yearly event, presented by the Rogers County Historical Society, benefit Belvidere Mansion restoration projects, keeping this Claremore treasure in good repair to be shared for years to come. We look forward to seeing you!
