Historic Bed and Breakfast - Hayes House
The Historic Hayes House has a storied past, as part of its elegant charm comes from its historical roots.
Back in 1907, a wealthy businessman by the name of Oscar Hayes had his sights set on becoming the first governor of Oklahoma, and he decided to set up shop in Muskogee, Oklahoma. That same year, he began construction of what he presumed would be the Governor’s Mansion, and he even planned to give his inaugural speech right from the balcony.
Unfortunately, as most of us know “the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry,” and Mr. Hayes did not win. However, his home remains as fashionable and welcoming today as it did when his dream mansion was first erected.
In 1995, Jim Holder found this historic property in lackluster condition, and he knew he had to something to renovate it. He bought the home in 1996, and made its renaissance his personal project of love and devotion. He updated the home with all new wiring and plumbing, and he was able to provide the home with the modern amenities it needs without taking away any of his historical appeal.
Today, the home is just a few blocks away from the Silk Stocking District of Muskogee, Oklahoma, and just a few blocks away from downtown. Jim and our team welcome you to come stay at our historical house, and we promise to make your retreat an enjoyable one.
