We toured the Overholser Mansion, and loved not only its architecture, but its history as well. Lisa, our host for the tour, was extremely knowledgeable and was a delightful guide. The Overholser is a true jewel of OKC, and is worth a visit. We loved it!

The mansion was great but the neighborhood is what we really loved as we walked around viewing all the mansions in the area. Well worth our time

Even my kids liked this one - 19, 16, 10 years of age. Beautiful, seems untouched, a treasure cemented in time. Hostess took time to warm up, but once she became comfortable, she was a joy to hear the stories from surrounding this family. Her knowledge of the history of this place is vast. We were allowed to spend as... More

It's not just an old house!! It's a view into life in OKC America in the days of Downton Abbey. The heir sold it with everything inside--original chandeliers, rugs, furniture, clothes, & the china--omg! We got inspiration for restoring our own 100 year old OKC house. The history of the mansion, the family, OKC, etc. provided by the excellent tour... More

Right in the heart of Oklahoma City lies this gem of an historical mansion. Between the original furnishings of the house and the knowledgeable, enthusiastic tour guides, this is a must see attraction when visiting the city!

The Overholser Museum is located in the Heritage Hills historic district. In my opinion, of the museums and attractions in OKC, this would be in the Top 3 of all attractions. Tours are currently offered Tuesday-Saturday from 10 am-2pm at the top of each hour and the entrance fee is $10 for adults. The mansion is closed the month of... More

I've lived in the OKC area my entire life, but just recently visited this beautiful home. The entire Heritage Hills area is just lovely and this place is the icing on the cake. OKC was settled in 1889. This was considered the country back then. I would love to live in this area.

This place is very historically significant to the city of Oklahoma, but more over it is also a very neat place to visit. The mansion is beautiful from the outside and so are the surrounding grounds. But inside is even better due to the fact that most of the furniture, wall coverings and household goods are original to the mansion... More
