Ponca City Now - September 21, 2015 8:52 am
The television series, Discover Oklahoma, will air a segment on Marland’s Grand Home at 6:30 p.m. Saturday on KFOR, Channel 4, Oklahoma City.
The site was the first Ponca City mansion of oil baron and founder of Marland Oil, E.W. Marland. Marland Oil later merged with Continental Oil Company of Denver, Colorado and became Conoco.
Dino Lalli, host of Discover Oklahoma, spent several hours in August with Marland Estate Assistant Director Jayne Detten, interviewing her and filming the exhibits and layout of the site.
The historic site is on the National Register of Historic Places.
Recent interior upgrades to the home include the addition of Marland family exhibits, a Marland oil exhibit, a Marland history video, a 101 Ranch history video, and a Marland gallery hall showing the timeline of E. W. Marland’s life and accomplishments, his vintage automobiles, yacht, and private railway car.
Visit Marland’s Grand Home at 1000 E. Grand Avenue from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Ponca City residents are admitted free and admission for out-of-town visitors is $3 for adults and $1 for children.
