Review of Governor's Mansion

Governor's Mansion
Reviewed January 16, 2014

What a wonderful tour with a guide and we were the only ones that morning! It's a beautiful Mansion with so many intresting treasures in each room. Our guide works there and was very knowledgable which is what made the tour so interesting and enhoyable. I would definately recomend .going here! After the tour you are akkiwed to wander through the gardens for as long as you'd like.

We took a tour of the Governor's mansion. What a fantastic place. Fantastic gardens outside. The tour guide, Christian Green was more than excellent. His knowledge was extremely good and he was very warm, and friendly. I would highly recommend him. The mansion is beautiful and filled with antique treasures and historical artifacts. What a wonderful visit!

There are 3 houses as I recall on the grounds. Two on the south east corner (standing in front of the mansion) and then the Governor's mansion of course. The Lace house is on the property and is a beautiful old home that you should check out while there. The mansion itself is full of rich history and decor. The history behind the house and items within is so fascinating. You can set up a time for tours online at the states tourism site. There is parking around the mansion that is metered or there are other options near by. It is a neat place to visit if you are into the history or just into seeing a really nice house.

They have only occasional tours. It is interesting to see how the Governor's family lives. It's especially nice at Christmas.
