On today's episode of the Only in OK Show, we discuss the Woolaroc Museum & Wildlife Preserve in Bartlesville, Oklahoma.
 
Founded in 1925 by oilman Frank Phillips, Woolaroc is a 3,700 acre working ranch that has a 50,000 square foot museum with a collection described by Christie’s of New York as “one of the finest collections of southwest art in the world” along with the original Lodge home and a large herd of bison, elk, longhorn cattle, scotch highland cattle and hundreds of deer. Woolaroc museum hosts an outstanding collection of western art and artifacts, Native American material, and one of the finest collections of Colt firearms in the world. The name WOOLAROC is derived from three words—the woods, lakes and rocks that make up the beautiful Osage Hills of northeast Oklahoma where Woolaroc is located. The name was originally intended for the rustic Lodge ranch house, but it was so unique that it soon became the name for the entire Frank Phillips ranch. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Will Rogers once said, 'When you are visiting the beauty spots of this country, don't overlook Frank Phillips' ranch and game preserve in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. It's the most unique place in this country.’
 
Bartlesville is a city mostly in Washington County. The city hosts several annual festivals and shows, nearly all focused in the downtown.  Sunfest is the first weekend of June. It includes an arts and crafts show, a music festival, a kids festival, and a classic cars show.
