"J.M. Davis Museum - Largest Gun Collection" Claremore Things to Do Tip by DSwede

Claremore Things to Do: 2 reviews and 5 photos

J.M. Davis, a local boy, was given a gun by his father. That kindled a fondness for guns for which he eventually put on display in the lobby of the Manson Hotel after he traded the deed for some land.

Over time, Davis' collection grew to be one of the largest, complete and thorough private collections of Arms in the world.

Davis gave his collection to a Trust, under the condition that upon his death, the Trust would work with the State of OK to maintain the collection. To this day, it is still free to the public.
