Virtual tours of Marland homes coming soon

Ponca City Now - July 2, 2015 2:34 pm

Vann and Associates, an Oklahoma City public relations production company, has created a virtual tour of both Marland’s Grand Home and the Marland Mansion which will be released this summer.

The production will bring to life on the small screen the story of E.W. Marland and his oil company, Marland Oil. The tour, which can be viewed by visitors on an IPad or IPhone, will be connected once the visitor is inside either site.

The tour will guide the visitor from room to room telling about each space, describing the history of the Marland family, and showing historic and simulated vignettes and photos of the company and the family.

E.W. Marland was more than just an oil baron. He employed thousands of local citizens, put in place never-before-heard-of insurance benefit packages, provided low interest loans for housing, gave away sections of land for schools and an orphanage and a hospital, paid church bills, and supported many local charitable causes.

E.W. Marland went on to become a U.S. Congressman from Oklahoma and then the 10th Governor of the State of Oklahoma supporting President Roosevelt’s New Deal in the 1930s.

Visit the Marland Mansion at 901 Monument Road, Monday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. Admission prices are $7 adults, $5 students, and $5 seniors.

Marland’s Grand Home at 1000 E. Grand Avenue, is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission for adults is $3, and Youth 7-18 are $1. Children under 6 and Ponca City residents are free. See the web site at http://www.marlandgrandhome.com/ for more information on Marland’s Grand Home.
