Overholser Mansion is located in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and was built in 1903, which was four years before Oklahoma officially became a state. It was built by a man named Henry Overholser who was a wealthy businessman and the first president of the chamber of commerce. The home is now under the care of the Oklahoma Historical Society and they have maintained many of the home’s original furniture. The front parlor was where Henry’s wake too place after he died. The casket was laid alongside many beautiful flowers and famous individuals who came to say goodbye to a well-respected man.
Almost all visitors to this mansion have reported experiences of paranormal phenomena. This include sseeing body impressions on newly-made beds, brooms placed in the middle of the hall, and odd sounds from different areas throughout the home. The parlor seems to be the most haunted area of the mansion. It is even the site for the Oklahoma City Ghost Club’s highest electromagnetic field variance of record at 150 mg.
One experience an investigator had was when a closet door flung open while he was walking past it on his right side.
