New at Marland’s Grand Home is the booklet, “Marland’s Grand Home, Where the Twenties Roar,” a look into the E.W. Marland family’s life and times at the home.
The booklet includes stories and many photos of the Marland family and the Marland Oil Company in the 1920s.
During this decade of prosperity, both in Ponca City and the nation, E.W. Marland was building his successful oil business, Marland Oil, becoming one of the richest men in the United Sates while also building up the community of Ponca City.
Marland stated that as he built himself up, he wanted to also build those up around him. He paid not only a living wage, but a saving wage.
The booklet sells for $5 and can be purchased at the site.
