A Golden Girl Guest House in Ardmore is drawing visitors from around the country and has attracted national media outlets, too.

Just like the name suggests, the guest house has a “Golden Girls” theme.

Why is there a “Golden Girls”-inspired guest house in Ardmore?

Answer: Because of the person who grew up across the street — Oklahoma actor Rue McClanahan who played Blanche Devereaux in “The Golden Girls.”
