You may want to do a little reading about the Overholser family before you come. If you can't do that, the tour guide was awesome. There wasn't a question she could not answer and you could tell she loved her job! We were glad we took the time to go.

Don't be shy about asking questions about the history of the house, family, and OKC beginnings. Great tour!

Find out tour times before you go. The couple who have volunteered there for 20 years are great. The young, new tour guide is rude and impatient. She doesn't have near the knowledge or kindness that the seasoned tour guide does.

It is a fun tour that provides an interesting look at Oklahoma in her early years. I recommend it!

From Our Editors

From his 1889 arrival in Oklahoma City until his death in 1915, Henry Overholser was an instrumental force in the city's growth. Beyond his involvement in the metropolis's first waterworks project and trolley-car system, he built more than 35 buildings, including the United States Courthouse, the state fairgrounds, and a giant catapult to protect it from invading Kansans.

In addition to civic pride, Overholser also took time to care for his own habitat. In 1903, he completed construction of his home, a gargantuan, three-story chateau measuring more than 11,000 square feet paired with a smaller but no less stately 4,000-square-foot carriage house. These days, guided tours of the Henry Overholser Mansion begin there before moving into the main house, whose original furnishings and antwerp oak interior remain intact. The meticulously maintained dwelling retains most of its signature fixtures, which were picked out by Overholser himself, treating guests to glimpses of elegance including its original hand-painted canvas walls and stained-glass windows.
