La Quinta Foster Mansion
The La Quinta Foster Mansion was designed in 1930 by noted Kansas City architect Edward Buehler Delk. H.V. Foster, once known as the wealthiest man west of the Mississippi, located his new home on 152 acres three miles from the center of town. The 32-room, Spanish style mansion has 14 bathrooms and 7 fireplaces. Construction was completed in 1932 and it served as the family home until Mr. Foster's death in 1939. The Wesleyan Church now owns and operates Oklahoma Wesleyan College, an accredited, four-year liberal arts college. La Quinta is the focal point of the campus and serves as the library and administration facilities for the school. The La Quinta Foster Mansion is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
