Not far from Old Capitol Museum. Free of charge. Front end is the museum and the annex is where the governor lives. You will go through security gate when they are ready to show the next group. No photography and no touching to help preserve everything. Kellie was our guide and she was very informative. Kinda weird that we couldn't... More

The most important thing to know is that there are no restroom facilities, so plan ahead. This is a lovely, restored residence. The tour is free and takes about 30 minutes. Judy, our guide, did an excellent job. Definitely a must stop.

When I visited the Governor's Mansion, it was quite an experience, to say the least. Even though I am a local, I do not visit often.

You are guided thru the Mansion so you learn the history of all the furnishings and workmanship. It is worth the time to do this.

It was a great tour. we had a small group, so we learned a lot more than a larger group. It was fun and informative. Fun to know someone still lives in the home like the governor.
