“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

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.

“Good -- much potential awaits!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

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!
