The Thirsty Scribe visited the Clear Creek Monastery in Oklahoma and has a very full report, with photographs.

The monastery’s website

Our Lady of the Annunciation of Clear Creek
is a monastic foundation of the French Abbey Notre Dame de Fontgombault, itself a foundation of Saint Pierre de Solesmes. Solesmes owes most of its fame to Dom Prosper Guéranger, who started Saint Pierre in 1833 in order to restore Benedictine life in France after its disappearance during the French Revolution. He was convinced that the first thing to do to renew Christian life was to reestablish monasteries as centers of doctrine and of prayer.
