“Historic Marland Mansion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

The history of the people, estate and mansion is very well presented by the tour guides. The tour guides donate their time and efforts to this landmark. I have been twice. It is truly an American tragedy. It is a diamond in the rough! The grounds, statutes, furniture,and structures are beautiful.

“Very cool mansion!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

We were passing thru Ponca City and went here on a whim, and were happy we did. We did not do the guided tour because they said it was 2 1/2 hours or something crazy long like that. But they give you a little guide book and you can go thru at your own pace. It was all very interesting and they seem to have a lot of genuine artifacts still in the house. Definitely worth the visit if you want to see what kind of house the crazy rich build.

Beautiful grand home - walked through at our own pace. We were on a trip through eastern OK to see the haunts of the oil barons.

“A suprising Gem of a mansion found in the west”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Marland founded what would become known as Conoco Oil Company. A rival to Phillips Petroleum. Built an exquisite mansion in the 1920's, imported italian tiles, marble statues, gold fixtures in bathrooms, etc. Mansion and outbuilding still in excellent shape. Well worth the time in Ponca City.

“Wow!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Unbelievable luxury. Truly a mansion on the prairie! Worth travelling far to view. Built by an oil baron who was generous and made many people rich. A Governor at one time too. See it!
