Contrary to popular belief, you can't force a flashback to another century no matter how hard you hit your head with a wet fish. Today's Groupon lets you and a friend travel back in time while causing a minimum of temporal paradoxes. For $4, you get two adult passes (a $10 value) to tour the Henry Overholser Mansion in Heritage Hills. Guided tours are available Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Mr. Henry Overholser was a prominent businessman who helped develop Oklahoma City, taking part in the first water-works and trolley-car systems, in addition to building more than 35 buildings, including the State Fairgrounds, the United States Courthouse, and the secret underground polar-bear labyrinth. Preserved with its original furnishings and breathtaking stained-glass windows, his 1903 home is a remarkable depiction of life at that time. During the roughly 30-minute guided tour, guests will roam more than 11,000 square feet of original furnishings amidst the three-story chateau's hand-painted canvas walls, lavish fixtures, and Antwerp oak interior.

Whether you're an actor gearing up for a period piece or a ghost hunter mystified by the hollowness of your voice as the mansion swallows it, everyone can find something to inspire the imagination at the Overholser Mansion. Closet vampires can indulge their nostalgia for a bygone century, while mystery buffs can enact a life-size game of Clue in the opulent mansion. Take your contractor out for a little secret-passage brainstorming with today's deal.

Reviews

10Best.com lists the Overholser Mansion as one of the best attractions in Oklahoma City. Three TripAdvisors give the manor 4.5 owl eyes, while five Yahoo! Travelers give it a perfect five stars:

  • The Overholser Mansion was a great blast from the past. The architecture was impressive-wood carvings, mural paintings, and the furniture was just beautiful. The staff was friendly and very informative. – Dand978, TripAdvisor
  • One of the greatest aspects of the house is that the furniture is all original - not "of the period". – A Yahoo! Contributor, Yahoo! Travel
  • There is simply not a better place to glimpse into what life was like at the turn of the 20th century! – 5genoklahoman, TripAdvisor

Henry Overholser Mansion

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.

Customer Reviews

The showings are from 10am to 2pm on the hour and they last about 35-45 minutes. It was a great way to look into some of Oklahoma's history. Would recommend and plan to go again.
