Enjoy a continental breakfast at the hotel before we depart and travel to Bartlesville to visit the Phillips Petroleum Museum. The museum takes us through the early days of oil and gas production and years of product development with a heavy emphasis on aviation as we explore the interactive exhibits. The Phillips Brothers, Frank and L.E. Phillips hit their first gusher in the middle of Indian Territory and continued with 81 wells in a row without a dry hole. After lunch on your own we will explore the ranch retreat of Frank Phillips. Hidden away in the rugged Osage Hills of Northeast Oklahoma the retreat is known as Woolaroc, which stands for woods, lakes, and rocks. The retreat established in 1925 is a 3,700 acre wildlife preserve, home to many species of native and exotic wildlife, such as buffalo, elk and longhorn cattle. Woolaroc is also a museum with an outstanding collection of western art and artifacts, Native American material, one of the finest collections of Colt firearms in the world, and so much more. Next, we are off to Pawhuska. Although it may be in a small town, Pawhuska’s downtown shop The Pioneer Woman Mercantile has a big reputation. Owned by Food Network TV show host Ree Drummond, aka The Pioneer Woman, this shop is a must-see destination in northeast Oklahoma. The Mercantile boasts every kind of merchandise from beaded bracelets and handmade leather goods to apparel. Prepare yourself for a warm, welcoming and unforgettable experience at this one-of-a-kind attraction. Located in a 1910 structure that was originally named the Osage Mercantile Building, this unique shop has spent time as a regional telephone company and the Osage Realty Company. Visitors will find charming details such as original brick walls and tin ceilings. We return to Claremore for our overnight with dinner included.   (B, D)
Friday, June 8
Continental breakfast included at the hotel before we depart and head to Grove, Oklahoma where first stop will be at Har-Ber Village one of the largest antique museums in the United States, located on the shores of Grand Lake O’ The Cherokees. Har-Ber Village was built as a gift to the public form Harvey and Bernice Jones, founders of Jones Trucking. The village began with the construction of a church that Harvey built for Bernice and from there continued to grow into a reconstructed turn-of-the-century village with over one hundred buildings. See more of Grove with a city tour that will include a stop at Cayuga Mission built in the late 1800s by Mathais Splitlog. Cayuga Mission is the first church built in Oklahoma by a Native American with his own funds to serve the religious needs of the area. After lunch we will continue our journey home with many wonderful memories of Northeast Oklahoma. (B)
