“Beautiful and wonderfully restored.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

Everyone should visit the old Governor's mansion at least once in their life. They have maintained all the rooms beautifully and have managed to keep many original furnishings. The ball room on the top floor is interesting. Can't imagine very many BIG dances held there, but it's fun to imagine what it was like way back when.

“Grand Historic Mansion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2011

If you like history or architecture, a stop at the original governor's mansion is worth the time. The grand old home is lovely. The inexpensive tour is well led by historical society volunteers who impart history in addition to pointing out interesting architectural features and telling stories of past governors and their families. The mansion is a short drive from the capitol building, the cathedral. and Last Chance Gulch.
