Mr. Henry Overholser arrived in Oklahoma City in 1889 and was involved with nearly every aspect of the city’s growth until his death in 1915.  He built over 35 buildings, including two opera houses, the United States Courthouse, and the State Fairgrounds.  He was the founding president of the Board of Trade, today known as the Chamber of Commerce, and was involved with the County Commission, the first water works project, and the first trolley car system.

In 1889, Mr. Overholser married Anna Ione Murphy, the daughter of Samuel Murphy, Oklahoma's first Territorial Treasurer, and the pair quickly established themselves as leaders in the social affairs of Oklahoma City.  In 1902, Mr. Overholser purchased the first three lots in Classen's Highland Park Addition, now known as Heritage Hills.  The 11,000+ square foot home and 4,000 square foot Carriage House were finished in 1903 complete with extravagant furnishings, stained glass windows and an interior of Antwerp Oak, the Mansion was deemed a sign of Oklahoma City's development and prosperity.
