    ABOUT THE HENRY OVERHOLSER MANSION

    Constructed by Henry Overholser, referred to as the "Father of Oklahoma City," and his wife Anna, the Overholser Mansion is considered the first mansion built in Oklahoma City.  David Jay Perry, the son-in-law of the Overholsers, sold the mansion and all of its belongings to the Oklahoma Historical Society in April 1972. The nonprofit Preservation Oklahoma has been the caretaker of this Oklahoma City treasure since 2003. 

    Our party will be in the Carriage House and lawn, but you'll have the opportunity to explore the mansion and ask questions.
