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

This is a must-see for the historical or architectural enthusiasts. (Our teen loved it as well!) We booked the tour in advance due to a busy season, and they were exceedingly accommodating for our health challenges and time constraints. Our tour guide was a wealth of knowledge, provided a phenomenal tour, and gave us time to see every single detail... More

We really enjoyed our guided tour through Oklahoma's history through this Mansion and it's original owner. The tour guide was very informative. The contents of the mansion are 90%+ original so it was like taking a walk through history.
