“Wonderful”
Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

Our tour guide, Lisa, was very knowledgeable and passionate about the home. She shared wonderfully interesting details about the beautiful old home. If you're in OKC, you should see this treasure captured in time.

“No tour due to bad weather”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

OKC had a thunderstorm come through so we did not get to go on a tour inside because they were closed; however, my husband and I walked around outside and took pictures of the house. It was breathtaking and all I could imagine is seeing Mrs. Overholser entertaining her friends on the beautiful lawn! Next time we will be in OKC I hope the weather is nicer so we can go inside!

“Being Restored but beautiful”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We did not get to take the guided tour, but the exterior of the mansion was covered in scaffolding as it is being restored. The house is gorgeous! Close to down town OKC. We missed the last tour, but they are on the hour starting at 10:00am.

“Interesting Historical Home”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

We found this house to be very interesting but they are doing some work on it so our tour had to enter thru the kitchen door which disorients you to some degree on the floor plan of the house. It has ceilings that were hand stenciled and that was amazing. They were very detailed and large ornate patterns. The guide was very good about sharing interesting stories about the family and neighbors who lived here. They have lots of furniture, clothes, and all kinds of things that belonged to the family so that was interesting to see. We also loved driving around the Heritage Hills historic district surrounding the house after the tour.

“Not to be missed”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

My wife and I love old architecture and this is one of the neatest homes we have seen that somehow retained 95% of its original contents from the turn of the century. It also has a great story. Someday there won't be anymore of these beauties left for us to enjoy. I'm glad there are people out there that care enough to save them.
