Lots to see and take in, wear a good pair of walking shoes. Liked the way Charleston is laid out and could imagine living there during the Civil War.

The Governor's Mansion is located beside the West Virginia State Capital and is beautiful inside and outside. The grounds adjoin the Capital grounds and they are well maintained.

Very stately. Majestic! Truly worthy of the state citizenry's highest elected official. Too bad it has to be occupied currently by a jackaxx -- er, donkey. Any elephant would be better!
