Long Description:
Lake Claremore is located on the northeast side of town. In an area designated as Bert Spangel Park (Claremore City Park), this boathouse stands on the shore. It is a two-story building constructed of cut, coursed and rusticated native sandstone, built by the WPA in 1938. The entry room faces west and has a single pedestrian door with a stone arch. This area has a high casement window and a chimney, and a gabled roof. Behind this on the lower level is the area in which the boats docked. This area has a gabled roof which is currently covered with metal sheeting. A room in this area was once used by Claremore Police as a jail.

The current use could not be determined, possibly for storage. The local ducks and geese are very friendly. We disappointed them as we had no food. The local area is used for fishing only, with boats under 8 ft. in length. This is one of very few boathouses constructed by the WPA in Oklahoma.
