Dubbed the “Palace on the Prairie,” the Marland Mansion was built in the 1920s by oil baron and 10th governor of Oklahoma, Ernest Whitworth Marland. In keeping with the imposing exterior, the home is rich and opulent inside, filled with artwork, gilded and painted ceilings, elaborate woodwork, wrought iron, and statuary. Despite his love of the mansion, Marland lived there for only a few years, as his financial situation soured and the home became a burden to maintain. Operated by Ponca City as a museum since the 1970s, the house is slowly being restored to its former glory.
