Went with my boyfriend's mother for some historical appreciation and amateur ghost hunting. The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly, and I can't wait to take my boyfriend when he comes back.

We recently toured the Overholser Mansion. Our guide had a wealth of knowledge about not only the history of the house and its occupants/owners, but of Oklahoma in general. The house has had only four occupants in its history, and it is almost totally as it was in 1903, furnishings included. It was a great tour.

Loved this trip into Oklahoma's past. The guide was extremely knowledgeable of the history of the family, the interior of the house and furnishings and Oklahoma in general. The tour was not too fast. Plenty of time to see it all and ask questions. Fascinating!

I would feel compelled to give this place a 5, but learned more about it on the Internet, than the details the tour guide (who's been giving tours since the 1990's) provided The day we visited, the air conditioner on the upper floors was not working. The tour guide asked if we still wanted to tourist. We said we would,... More

If you want to spend an afternoon in another era, stop in at the Overholser Mansion. The house is set for a party and it is beautiful. Amazing to see and every time I visit I notice something I had not seen the previous trips. I love the imagination that was used to display silver, crystal, and china from another... More

This is a beautiful home that has most of the original contents which is very unusual. Our guide was so nice and friendly with lots of knowledge about the home and its residents through the years. Well worth the time.

When we travel we try to find old homes anywhere on our route. This house was just beautiful, and a very livable house, not over done like some others are.

This tour starts off at the carriage house, just to the left of the main home. I went to the Director's Tour which was $15 a person, and totally worth it! You have a smaller group, more time to talk to the guides and ask questions, PLUS get to walk in rooms and see areas that the regular tours do... More

This was just going to be a mildly interesting side note to our OKC visit, but turned out to be one of the highlights. What a fascinating look into early 20th century opulence. This is not an old mansion turned into a museum, this is a look into the past as this mansion is just they way it was lived... More
