This place was amazing! We had a family event at the carriage house and it made the event perfect. There is so much history in both the overholser mansion and the carriage house and the care taken to preserve is amazing. In the carriage house we had a band and music and food enough for 60 people. The place feels... More

I have visited the Overholser Mansion 6-8 times and, as a true fan of Victorian architecture, furnishings and style, this gem does not disappoint. Yes, the lighting inside the home is a bit dim (so as to preserve the authentic period fabrics and finishes from sunlight and such), but this home is to be greatly appreciated like a fine wine...

Really beautiful mansion, it was closed when I arrived but I was able to walk around and see how beautiful it was as well as the other homes in the "Heritage District" . Very impressive.

We love touring old historic homes and this one was very good. Everything was left the way it was when the family lived there. It added to the beauty of the home and you can imagine what it was like to live there. Treasures like this need to be preserved. The guide was very knowledgeable and you could tell she... More

I enjoy touring old homes. This was one of the best. Everything is the families, with a few exceptions on the 3rd floor. Interesting to see something that looks like the family just walked out.

We were taken in by this step-back-in-time house. Not altered since 1915 (except for necessary maintenance and repair), we admired the craftsmanship in this home. Our tour guide was excellent. You have access to virtually all of the house. This tour really gives you a sense of the beginnings of OKC.

We really enjoyed our tour ($7 each) The guide was informative and so helpful. This is one of the few historic houses where you get to walk from bottom to top, up the family stairs and the main stairs and to every floor without those pesky locked doors for offices etc. I was even allowed to look into cupboards! The... More

This has just undergone a significant renovation/shoring up of the magnificent historical features. It is a showplace. The furniture is period, and it is a delightful look into the early times of the state of Oklahoma. There is a vigorous group of interested neighbors and OKC citizens who LOVE this home and are always seeing to the repairs and renovations.... More

We took our my in-laws here who came to visit from Texas. As a native Okie, I loved hearing the history as we toured the carriage house and the mansion. It is absolutely gorgeous!
