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.

The Heritage area is a very pretty historical area of Okla. City. Close to downtown. It is very easy to get to this mansion and to park. The mansion was very interesting and had some original furnishings.

This mansion is unique in that all the furnishings are original to the house. The family that lived there donated everything and it's like taking a step back in time and visiting the rich relatives in OKC one hundred years ago. What a gem!

We took the last tour of the day. The area is great, many old homes and the tour guide was wonderful and everything is original to the house.

Do your research! This is a beautiful neighborhood and If We moved to OKC we would want to live here. Huge houses/mansions everywhere. I could not keep my eyes on the road so many nice homes. The place was closed so we parked and walked around for about 30 minutes. Place is nice. Look at the website...get the tour.

Our guide heightened our curiosity into the lives of the occupants, their neighbors and the formulating early days of the town's development. We took a 40 minute walk throughout the neighborhood just to view the variety of opulent (for their time) homes. Much has been done to restore the exterior and ambitious plans lay before their agency as they contemplate... More

This is a cool neighborhood and I recommend doing the tour in the fall. There is so much history and the houses are amazing. The Overholser Mansion is great…but they are starting some renovations soon because of support issues so call ahead and find out what you can and cannot see.

What a great tour, the guide was very informative. It is just wonderful how it has been kept in such great order. Just loved looking how it was for this family and the history of Oklahoma City.

Our tour guide, Lisa, was very knowledgeable and passionate about the home. She shared wonderfully interesting details about the beautiful old home. If you're in OKC, you should see this treasure captured in time.

OKC had a thunderstorm come through so we did not get to go on a tour inside because they were closed; however, my husband and I walked around outside and took pictures of the house. It was breathtaking and all I could imagine is seeing Mrs. Overholser entertaining her friends on the beautiful lawn! Next time we will be in... More
