Description

Experience the historical architectural splendor of Oklahoma's House.  The Oklahoma Governor's Mansion, dedicated in 1928, features a 14,000 sq. ft. interior that is divided into 12 rooms.  The Dutch-Colonial style residence was designed by the Oklahoma architectural firm of Layton, Hicks and Forsyth.  Located near the State Capitol in the heart of Oklahoma City, the mansion was outfitted with an exterior of Carthage limestone to match the capitol building.

The Oklahoma Governor's Mansion features antiques and artwork from both museum and private collections.  Artists represented in oil and bronze include N.C. Wyeth, Charles Russell, Thomas Moran and Albert Beirstadt.  The mansion's rooms include a library, parlor, dining room, grand ballroom, kitchen, sunroom and five bedrooms.  All key furnishings were donated by Oklahomans and, as property of the state, remain with the mansion.

The mansion's library features walnut paneling and moldings that have been restored, along with the room's original 1928 color scheme of rich burgundy, gold and green.  The mansion's dining room features an original walnut buffet and table pedestals, as well as a cut-glass chandelier.  The dining chairs each feature a hand-stitched needlepoint seat cover depicting either the state seal, the seal of one of the Five Civilized Tribes or a state emblem.

Visitors to the Oklahoma Governor's Mansion will not want to miss a trip through the mansion's third-floor ballroom, where as many as 60 people can be seated during state functions.  The ballroom windows, chandeliers and elaborate moldings are replicas of the 1928 originals, and a Persion area rug accents the ballroom's original maple floor.  A swimming pool shaped like the state of Oklahoma is also located on mansion grounds.

Come and enjoy a real taste of Oklahoma elegance at the Oklahoma Governor's Mansion.  Advance tour reservations are required for groups of 50 or more.  Photography is allowed, however large backpacks and strollers are not.

I have a fainting couch that was supposed to have been in the governor's mansion sometime. I would be willing to donate it to you to display if you are interested. Please let me know. Thanks!
