E.W. Marland moved to Ponca City in 1908 and built an oil empire. It's estimated he owned one-tenth of the world's oil reserves before leaving the oil industry to become first a U.S. Congressman, then the 10th governor of Oklahoma.
Marland's Grand Home was built from 1914 to 1916 and featured technology many had never seen. The Marland family enjoyed a central vacuuming system, an automatic dishwasher and the first indoor swimming pool built in Oklahoma.
Visitors here will enjoy strolling the restored rooms alongside an assortment of exhibits showcased in the Grand Home. The home now houses Marland Family displays, 101 Ranch artifacts, an archeology display, Native American artifacts, and a DAR exhibit.
