Love this place. It is really neat. They have kept it "original" and the docets are very knowledgable. The grounds are very well kept. Price is reasonable.

Great visit! I went for the last tour of the day at 2pm. Cost was $4 for a student and I was the only person on the tour. We started in the carriage house and the wonderful guide told me about the Overholser family while showing me olds pictures and affects. Then we went through all three floors of the... More

Good place to visit and experience life 100+ year ago. Interesting but lots of stairs. Volunteer who told history of family and home was knowledgeable and nice.

The house is ipretty and the surrounding neighborhood is too. Everything in the house was left there by the last family member: dishes, clothes, etc. Makes for an interesting experience. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. She even called a taxi for us!

My mom and I had a splendid time and my one year old son loved the third floor, which is the children's playing area and nanny's quarters

Our 15 year old daughter is a fan of architecture and design, so we stopped here on our trip from St. Louis to the Grand Canyon. Did not know that Overholser was essentially the father of Oklahoma, but was really impressed with the tour. The carriage house is amazing and our tour operator was quite knowledgeable. The neat thing about... More

This is a slice of old Oklahoma City back when living was gracious, little slower in pace. Love the fact they have retained the original tiles, woodwork and atmosphere of the house.

Intriguing walk through history. early Oklahoma History, when this luxury mansion was perched on a slight rise looking upon the growing Oklahoma City downtown area. Modern conveniences were scant then, so seeing how the home was heated and the new "electric phenomenon" was employed makes this enriching. The matching wallpaper and table setting touches, the scenic bell tower-styled writing studio,... More

Fun tour when they are operating. You can get discount tickets in advance if you scour the area or call them for tour times and prices. I would go again. :)
