Stopped in at the Governor's residence for something to do on a Sunday afternoon. Very very nice. Elegant and classy. Hard to believe people actually live there. A must see.

It was a long time ago when I came here. It was for a field trip. I'm pretty sure in elementary, but I really enjoyed it as I love mansions.

We were invited to the Governor's Mansion after my daughter was sworn in as a Probation Officer. My elderly father attended and has difficulty walking up and down stairs since losing a leg in a farming accident. The staff at the mansion were more than accomodating in letting Dad use the elevator so he could attend the reception for his... More

We have been here a few times for their tailgating parties. This last year we felt the food was the best. We enjoy viewing the house and sitting in their lovely gardens

A modern non descript colonial revival house which replaced a beautiful 19th century mansion; has no connection to Nebraska culture or history. Unimaginative architectural statement. For a governors mansion worth seeing, I recommend Iowa's Terrace Hill in Des Moines.
