Attracted by Claremore’s two railroads, John M. Bayless brought his family to Indian Territory in 1901. By 1902, Bayless started building his castle-like mansion; unfortunately, Mr. Bayless died before the Belvidere was completed in 1907. The mansion is a unique three-story Victorian mansion. The house is brick with a tile roof and has four towers, one on each corner. A portico on the north side provided cover for the guest carriages as they arrived for gala parties. Open year round for shopping, touring, or dining in the Tea Room. The Belvidere is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. Admission by voluntary contribution.
