- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- General InformationThe concept of Bed & Breakfast’s in America dates back to the days of Benjamin Franklin when people opened their homes to the weary traveler. This Bed & Breakfast home was built in 1907 as a private residence by Mr. Adrian Gordon and wife Celestia, owner of the Reed, Oklahoma telephone company. In 1921 after the passing of his wife, Mr. Gordon moved with his two daughters, son-in-laws and grandchildren to the “promise land” California, selling the White House to George and Dura Johnson.George Johnson, a wealthy druggist from Mangum owned the home from 1921 until 1962 when it went up to public auction to settle his estate. Another Johnson family owned it a short six years before selling to Gordon and Obera Thomason. The Thomason’s owned the White House from 1968 until purchase by Ben & Evette Whisenant in 1996. The Whisenants renovated the house and started a Bed & Breakfast in 1999.In 2007 the house was purchased by Will & An Sanders from the Netherlands (Europe) and they run the Bed & Breakfast now.They re-decorated the interior of the house with antique furniture and clocks out of Europe.Taken in its entirety with both the exterior and interior contributing to its uniqueness, the house is a very interesting example of Victorian architecture in pioneer Oklahoma, and has been preserved as a piece of Oklahoma’s history. ... more less
