I was in Oklahoma on business and the Henry Overholser Mansion was one of the places to visit according to Trip Advisor. There are other mansions in the vicinity which are not open to the public so the whole immediate area is worth visiting and driving around. Highly recommend if you are in the area. I never imagined such grandeur in Oklahoma...

It was a very enjoyable tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the mansion and the Overholser family. My best friend and I went there as an outing and followed the tour with lunch at a local café. It was a lovely day!

The tour was about an hour and well worth the time! Lisa is an excellent guide, well educated in the history of the home and the family. She also knows interesting stories about the city during the time the house was thriving. Exceptional visit!!

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.
