1995, 12 August
Will Rogers and his favorite quarterhorse, Comanche, pause again for a drink at the old town pump. The scene is recreated in The Cherokee Kid monument in downtown Oologah.
The Indian Territory town centered around the pump, a source of water for the community and for teams of horses bringing goods and people to the railroad depot. Will was no exception, stopping for a refreshing drink and a little conversation at the pump.
In 1992, the Oolagah Historical Society Commissioned Talala artist Sandra Van Zandt to sculpt the bronze monument. The monument was unveiled on Aug. 12 1995, in memory of Will Rogers on the 60th anniversary of his tragic death. Academy-award-winning actor Ben Johnson from Pawhuska, Oklahoma unveiled the monument. Assisting Johnson was Jimmy Rogers, Will's only surviving son.
