Beautiful old building with lots of history. Tours of main floor (living room, dining rooms, sun room, office) and lower level (meeting room, doll & dish collections).. Doll collection representing wives of governors (plus one husband),dress in gowns representing one of their favorites. Some past governors wives have also left a piece of jewelry or keepsake which are on display. Loved the formal dining room and the sun room. Large silver pieces, chandeliers & rotating art exhibit.

Stopped in at the Governor's residence for something to do on a Sunday afternoon. Very very nice. Elegant and classy. Hard to believe people actually live there. A must see.

It was a long time ago when I came here. It was for a field trip. I'm pretty sure in elementary, but I really enjoyed it as I love mansions.

We were invited to the Governor's Mansion after my daughter was sworn in as a Probation Officer. My elderly father attended and has difficulty walking up and down stairs since losing a leg in a farming accident. The staff at the mansion were more than accomodating in letting Dad use the elevator so he could attend the reception for his granddaughter. They even found him a chair and went to the front of the line to get his drink. I was very impressed by the caring stafff.
