Mansion built in 1856, bought by Governor Samuel TIlden (born in my home town!) in 1875 and the official governor's residence ever since. Beautiful Renaissance revival furniture & the artifacts of over 30 governors, several presidents. Worth the tour.

Beautiful building, great insight on what it is like living in a bubble. Tour was informative, guides were so nice.

The best mansion art tour north of Olana; It's worth making the advance reservation with limited access on Tuesday afternoons.
