This Abandoned 1920s Mansion In Oklahoma Will Never Be Forgotten…And It’s Hauntingly Beautiful

The town of Fairfax began in 1903 as a popular railway town within the Osage Indian Reservation. By the time of statehood in 1907, the town had over 450 residents and by 1940 the population had grown to over 2,300. Unfortunately, as oil production began dropping so did the population, which caused many homes and structures to be abandoned. One such home was a mansion built in the 1920s and was rumored to be the home of the town’s founder, Lew A. Wismeyer. The last known residents probably occupied the home in the 1990s and ever since the home has been withering away.

Here is a look into Fairfax’s abandoned mansion that is hauntingly beautiful.
