We are Claremore Main Street.
Claremore Main Street is dedicated to the ongoing revitalization of historic downtown Claremore. With a focus on economic vitality, historic preservation and placemaking, the organization strives to secure downtown as the social and economic core of the community. We make it our business to promote our unique retail and dining options, to improve the experience for guests and to preserve the history of our community. Further, we throw really great parties — hosting or cohosting several community-wide events downtown annually.
We are where Claremore’s historic past and present meet to shop, dine and unwind.
Claremore Main Street is a non profit 501c3 organization and has been focused on downtown revitalization since April of 2002. It is part of the Oklahoma Main Street Center. The organization is funded through municipal contributions, partnerships and fundraising events.
We are a National Historic District.
In September 2016, downtown Claremore was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a National Historic District due to its significant role in commerce in Claremore from 1890 to 1955. This area has been the center of commercial development in Claremore from shortly after its founding in the 1880s to the present.
Claremore Main Street is run by a Board of Directors and managed by an Executive Director.
Jacob Garrison began as the Executive Director on July 1st, 2019. Jacob holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration/Marketing degree from Missouri Southern State University, along with a Master of Science degree in Education from Northeastern State University.
