Hidden away in the rugged Osage Hills, Woolaroc was the ranch retreat of oilman Frank Phillips and is now a 3,700 acre wildlife preserve and world-class art museum. Come and see why Will Rogers called it “the most unique place in this country.” Frank Phillips built Woolaroc as a place for lavish parties and has hosted East Coast investors, Native American chiefs, and even bank robbers. Woolaroc is also a museum an outstanding collection of western art and artifacts, Native American material, one of the finest collections of Colt firearms in the world, and so much more. 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.
