The J.M. Davis Arms and Historical Museum will be featured on the RFD-TV and Cowboy Channel program, “Somewhere West of Wall Street”. The program will be broadcast Monday, September 16 at 8:30 pm.

Country music singer and song writer, Red Steagall is the host and creator of the popular weekly program. The show has won the prestigious Wrangler Award three out of the last four years in the western lifestyle category. This recognition is awarded by the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City.

“This was my first time to visit the Davis Arms Museum”, said Steagall. “My crew and I could not believe the quantity and quality of the weapons in the museum. We didn’t know where to begin. Fortunately, the museum curator, Jason Schubert showed us around and explained many of the artifacts to us. Our viewers are really going to enjoy seeing the Davis Museum.”

“Somewhere West of Wall Street”, is on the RFD channel and is locally shown on Dish-TV on channel 231. The program is now in its sixth season.

Steagall and his production crew came to Claremore this past February to record at the Davis Museum and at the Will Rogers Memorial. The Will Rogers Memorial will be featured on the September 23rd broadcast.

The J. M. Davis Arms and Historical Museum is the world’s largest privately held arms museum. It is located in downtown Claremore and is open Tuesday-Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm.
