“Timeless Elegance”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

I attended an event here and was impressed by the history and beauty of the mansion. The rooms are well preserved and lavishly decorated in the colonial style. The staff were friendly, efficient, and made this a memorable event for my family. We had pictures taken in their gardens, where the summer flowers were in full bloom. This was truly an unforgettable evening for all of us!

“Governor's house”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

The executive mansion is available for free tours a few hours every week. The building is impressive, but there are some signs of disrepair. The interior has a lovely decor, appropriate to the time of construction.The gardens are fairly well maintainted by volunteer and student organizations.

“Big Dissapointment!”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

The mansion porch is in disrepair, the yards are terrible and the inside area where we met the Governor showed wear and tear.Let's appropriate the money where our Governor lives and where people from our state and others visit. What an emabarrasment.

“Best tour in the city”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

Boy were we lucky. Tours are only give on Tue. and Thurs. and we were there on Thurs. The guide we had was this wonderful, lively 90+ woman who has given tours there for 20+ years. Her stories were fantastic. Totally loved her.
