State Capitol Complex

Governor's Mansion

This stately mansion has been the official residence of Oklahoma's Chief Executive since 1928. Designed by the same architectural firm that was chosen to design the State Capitol Building, the Governor's mansion reflects the same Dutch Colonial style.

State Capitol Complex

A tour of the Oklahoma State Capitol is a must for any history buff. It is the only capitol with a working oil well on its grounds.
After 87 years, it was constructed with a dome on November 16, 2002 the day of our statehood.

While in the Capitol Complex, be sure to visit the capitol building itself. Inside the building are magnificent murals by Oklahoma artist Charles Banks Wilson. The murals dominate the capitol building rotunda and several have Native American themes.

To the north of the building is the Tribal Flag Plaza, which displays all the tribal flags of Oklahoma. On the south side of the capitol is a monumental sculpture "As Long as the Waters Flow," by Native American sculptor Allan Houser.
