The volunteers that serve at this state historical site are both very informative and gracious. The mansion belonged to Iowa's first governor and his wife, William and Anna Larrabee. The home is furnished with original furniture and other artifacts. The home has two pianos which I was offered the opportunity to play with great joy. The grounds of this fourteen room stone and brick home are equally impressive including several statutes honoring famous Americans. This peaceful setting north of Clermont, Iowa offers one a unique step back in time and insight into one of Iowa's gubernatorial families. The tour is free to the public and lasts approximately 45 minutes.
