Steeped in History
The Burnett Mansion has been standing atop a hill in Sapulpa since 1911, when it was built to specific standards. Bates Burnett and his wife, Dannie, built the home to reflect the Southern Colonial-style plantation since Bates was from Tennessee.
The Burnett family spared no expense building their home. Mahogany was imported from the Philippines. Two artists traveled by boat from Italy and spent two years hand-painting the canvas walls and plaster ceilings with a different design in each room. The original windows, made from the finest stained and cut glass, still remain in the mansion.
