The mansion is quite imposing from the outside but softened by a fountain and colorful flowers and bushes.
The 4 large main first-floor rooms(the Governor's and First Lady's Reception Rooms, The Ballroom and the Dining Room) off the long entrance hall are imposing and quite ornate. There are many paintings of KY's famous horses, naturally! It's interesting to see a gallery of formal photos of all the governors on one wall with the first ladies on an opposite wall. Our guide(the Houseman has been in his job for many years) gave us quite an insight on the building and the furnishings. The Mansion visit was quite informative and a great experience!
