Will Rogers Birthplace Ranch

We are currently closed to the public.

The first priority of the Oklahoma Historical Society is the health and safety of our patrons, volunteers, and staff. We stand with our fellow Oklahomans in the effort to contain the spread of COVID-19. We have closed our sites and affiliates to the public through April 30.

In an effort to minimize gatherings, all OHS-sponsored events are canceled or postponed through May 2, and some events have been canceled beyond that date. We are posting all changes on our events calendar to keep you updated as the situation develops.

Thank you for your support and for being part of the OHS community.

This 400-acre living ranch, named the Dog-Iron Ranch by Will, has longhorn cattle, goats, donkeys, horses, and a peacock. The centerpiece of the ranch is “the White House on the Verdigris,” the home where Will Rogers was born. As you visit the house you can hear Will Rogers Jr. describe life on the ranch.

At the Birthplace Ranch you can stroll the grounds, see the room where Will Rogers was born, have a picnic lunch, and enjoy the wonderful view over Oologah Lake.
