Took a foreign friend to see our Governor's mansion. We took the holiday tour and it was very nice. It had been quite awhile since I had last visited the mansion and since I had forgotten almost everything from my previous visit, it seemed all new to me.
You will want to check the website for the actual months this palatial former private residence is open to the public for tours.

This was a nice place to visit for free during the Doors Open event.

They also open the mansion for select days when it is decorated for Xmas so I would love... 更多

The grounds are beautiful and you are allowed... 更多
