Governor's Mansion

Beautiful woodwork - needlepoint chair cushions. Had the priviledge of playing the piano for special occasions. The grounds have walking trails.

Limited hours but still worth it considering the governor and his family currently live there. The scenery was beautiful and the tour was free! Our guide was very helpful and informative!

We had no clue that this was around. Unfortunately we weren't able to access the main entry way was closed off to the public for some get together that was happening.

I've lived in Kansas for over 20 years and never knew where the governor's mansion was! Well, now we know. It is in a beautiful, quiet, well-to-do neighborhood in Topeka.

Compared to the entire city of Topeka, this is a nice area and location. You could go hiking on this trial, biking, walking, and golf course near by. Safe and all dogs on leash so no worries about a little guy picking on the big guy :D

I especially like walking the red trail, which is on the North side of the park. Be sure to drive all the way down (keep going!) on the road on the West... More
