We went during the Christmas season open house. The house was decorated professionally, so it was lovely. The best part was the live entertainment. Various groups performed throughout the day. The children's choir was so cute.

We got to visit the Governors Foyer and just look into 5 rooms on the ground floor. The trip name should be changed to the Governors Foyer.

We did not see the inside, just the outside as we strolled by. A lovely walk around the block you can see the grounds and most of the house. Beautiful home. Easy to get to if you are doing the museums in town.

You can always walk outside the fence of the governors mansion, peak through the fence at the landscaping and perhaps see a famous politician, but make the effort to find out when interior tours are offered. Well trained docents give tours, describe many historical objects...More
