Mission Statement of the Marland Estate:
- To restore and preserve this historic, architectural landmark
- To educate the public about E. W. Marland, founder of the Marland Oil Company, and his family
- To create an authentic atmosphere which portrays the Marland lifestyle during the 1920's and 1930's
Welcome to the home of E.W. Marland. The Marland story is fascinating and his home is an architectural wonder. It was designed and constructed as a showplace for pieces of fine art and in the process, it became a masterpiece in its own right. As you tour through this site, we'll show you the mansion and tell you the Marland story. You'll learn about the Marland family, the industry that made it all possible, and the "oil boom-town" that rose from it all, Ponca City, Oklahoma.
The Marland Estate has several small historic museums housed in original buildings that have been restored. These areas in the Artist Studio and Lydie's Cottage (formerly the chauffeur's cottage) each relate to Mr. Marland and help visitors learn more about his unique history.
