Henry Overholser Mansion
405 NW 15th Street, Oklahoma City, OK 73103 - United States
Built in 1903, the Henry Overholser Mansion showcases the legacy of the Overholser family and Oklahoma City history to this day.
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. Preservation Oklahoma has been the caretaker of this Oklahoma City treasure since 2003.
