“Average, but interesting”

Mississippi Governor's Mansion
Ranked #9 of 56 things to do in Jackson
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 11, 2014

Takes about an hour with a guide. Has been refurbished and if your a history buff for southern history it might be worthwhile.

The gracious wife of Governor Phil Bryant, Deborah, invited the Congeniality Sunday School Class, Brandon First United Methodist, to a tour of the mansion and a personal tour of the private living area, and she presented each of us with a beautiful ceramic cross made by the residents of The Mustard Seed facility.
We were in awe of the beautiful mansion and the Christmas decorations, and the hospitality of Mrs. Bryant.

Deborah Bryant is so gracious, making every visitor feel important as she shows off Mississippi's First Home. The renovations are beautiful, and certainly something every visitor and resident of Mississippi should make time for over the next few years.

This beautiful pre-Civil War structure is a real beauty. Tours are available with Christmas being the best time to visit.

OK, I work for the Governor, so many of my meetings and events here are for work more than pleasure. But the new Governor and First Lady have made certain that some much-needed renovations have taken place. Even when I am here for formal events, the Mansion staff are always very accommodating and hospitable in giving tours and sharing history. Visit if you can!
