2012 Fall Old Home Tour next Saturday

CLAREMORE — The Rogers County Historical Society presents the 2012 Fall Old Home Tour fundraiser to benefit the restoration and maintenance of the Belvidere Mansion.

The tour will be Saturday, Oct. 13 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
First time on the tour this year will be a Craftsman-style bungalow, built in 1910 with a wraparound porch. Kept in the same family for 85 years, the bungalow has been lovingly maintained and restored by its current owners. Also on tour is a home made from the reclaimed pieces of a salvaged barn, built in 1850.
The interior of this home features the “lodge look” and is sure to be of interest to men, with its vaulted ceiling 35’ tall and exposed interior beams. 
Also fascinating is the Bond Barn, the turn-of the century Kentucky-Derby Style barn on old highway 88. This perfectly preserved structure still contains the old grain trolley and tracks, and has a lofty 48 ft ceiling. The current owner, Dr Dean, will be on hand to personally answer questions and show the barn, which now houses his black Angus cattle.
Also on tour is a “Brownstone Manor,” known by local children around the area as “The Castle,” built by Charles and Delilah Thornton Hanes on her Indian headright land around 1880.  
At that time the Hanes property included the land at the foot of Claremore mound, burial place of Chief Clermont, the Osage leader for whom the city of Claremore is named. Built from rocks quarried from the area, the distinctive home was used as the first Sageeyah School. Currently full of beautiful Eastlake Victorian antiques, the house is on the National Register of Historic Places.
To purchase tickets or for further information, please call the Belvidere Mansion, at 918-342-1127.
