The E.W. Marland Mansion

 The Marland Mansion is a 43,561 square foot Mediterranean Revival-style mansion. Built by oil baron and philanthropist E.W. Marland, as a display of wealth at the peak of the 1920s oil boom, the house is one of the largest residences in the southwestern United States, and is known as the “Palace on the Prairie.” The mansion was constructed between 1925 and 1928, and influenced by the Palazzo Davanzati in Florence, Italy. Breathtakingly beautiful, this “American Castle” denotes incredible attention to detail with carved wood, sculptured stone, wrought iron arched doorways, Waterford crystal chandeliers and hand-painted and gold-leaf ceilings.

This showplace of craftsmanship and grandeur is spread over four floors — complete with a leather-lined elevator, twelve bathrooms, three kitchens, an elegant ballroom with 24-karat gold leaf-covered ceiling worth over $1.4 million, and seven fireplaces. Private tours of the Mansion will be available on Thursday.

The Cherokee Strip Party Bus

 When you travel between venues at the 2019 Cherokee Strip – you’ll be doing it in style! You’ll wish that the 8 minute journey between courses was longer as you enjoy a cool cocktail in the spacious interior of our fleet of Cherokee Strip Party Buses, complete with big screen LCD TV, bass-thumping premium sound system, and fiber-optic laser lighting.
