Claremore was once part of a huge forest, home only to the wild animals. Osage Indians, led by Chief Glahmo, came from Missouri and established a fur Trading Post along the Verdigris River in 1802. The Trading Post was on a 25 acre mound which came to be known as Clermont, a French word meaning "clear mountain." Soon thereafter, Chief Glahmo became known as "Chief Clermont." It was intended to name the town after Chief Clermont; however, due to a clerical error, the name was listed as Claremore, which stuck... and that's how Claremore got its name.

After the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, the area was designated as Indian Territory. The Cherokee tribe, forced from their eastern homes to new lands in northeast Oklahoma by way of the infamous "Trail of Tears," were given title to land which included Clermont Mound. The town began with a general store, blacksmith shop and a school. In 1874 the Post Office was established. The first settlers were mostly Cherokee Indians who prospered, organized constitutional governments, established towns and plantations, published newspapers, magazines and books, and established an extensive educational system. By 1900, Claremore was larger than Tulsa. The white man's population soon grew in size and eventually took control of the town.

Claremore, setting of the classic Broadway musical, "Oklahoma" is located in Rogers County, Green Country of northeastern Oklahoma, approximately 28 miles northeast of Tulsa.
