Description 

The second Marland Estate (The Villa), was constructed from 1925 to 1928, and was the home of Oklahoma's 10th Governor, United States Congressman, oil baron, and founder of Marland Oil Company. It was built from wealth created in Oklahoma by oil during the flamboyant 1920s. It is a product of the Eclectic Period and combines Italian Renaissance architecture with traditional Japanese garden design. Today, listed as a National Historic Landmark and owned by the City of Ponca City, the estate serves as an important cultural center and landmark and houses the Bryant Baker Gallery, Marland Oil Museum, Marland Family Exhibit, and the John Duncan Forsythe Room. -- Historic American Landscape Survey (HALS OK-13)
