Went to visit the mansion with family while on our first visit to OKC. You start at the carriage house - we were met by one of the head people from the state historical society - he obviously had great affection for this place. It was the first house built in the area, though it is now surrounded by old... More

We recently took out-of-town guests here. Lisa, who gave the tour, was excellent. The mansion is well worth seeing and the contents of the house original. If you're going downtown to see the Memorial or Bricktown, it's not out of the way and the drive through the neighborhood, Heritage Hills, is pleasant as well.

Yeah and with a history too. The Overholser family was colorful, wealthy, and liked nice things. A few famous folks visited here. Great neighborhood for a driving tour too.

My daughter took me on a trip to Oklahoma City and brought me on a tour of this historic home. I was immediately impressed by its charm and quiet grounds. We were fortunate enough to be the last tourists of the day and so got our wonderful tour guide to ourselves. She explained who built the home and when and... More

One of many mansions throughout the city, this relatively out of the way building has been lovingly restored and is worth a quick look if you are in the area.

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.
