The tour of the house is amazing! It feels like you have stepped back in time just as soon as enter the house. It is an uncanny feeling. The docent is very knowledgeable. I think she said that she has been giving tours for 20 years. She even claimed to have seen a ghost once in all those years. It... More

When you visit, you are transported to another time. I swear I felt the previous family! The docent is good and knows her history! She let us linger at each room so we could really look and enjoy

Between being able to tour the whole house with an excellent host that was left intact with books on the shelves and clothes in the closet, spectacular. I felt as if I was walking in the wake of someone who had just left that morning. The table was set ready for dinner that evening and in the kitchen, the original... More

The resident tour guide, Lisa did a fantastic job to really keep our interest. Her knowledge of the home and it's history was amazing. I will definitely bring my visiting family to see it. A must see in our book of places to see in OKC.

The Overholser Mansion is a nice tour if you are inthe area, it takes about 1/2 an hour and the tour leaves on the hour.

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
