I had the opportunity to visit the memorial and was surprised to find quite a few miniatures! There was an entire room of miniature dioramas depicting the life of Will Rogers and also a display of miniature saddles the Will collected during his world travels.
The Dioramas are mostly made from wood and plaster by artist Jo Mora and were created in the 1940's.
The first scene depicts the birthplace of Will Rogers, in Oologah Oklahoma. The house was affectionately called the white house of the Verdigris River
Here is a photo of the house today.
Here is a photo of the actual broadcast depicted above
Here is a photo of the great room in the families California home circa1935
The museum also has a life size recreation of Will's study from his California Ranch
The last scene depicts the wrecked plane were Will and his pilot Wiley Post lost thier lives off the coast of Alaska.
Apologies in advance for the glare
