My Tour of the Governor's Mansion


This past week my co-worker and I took a tour of our local Governor's mansion. The tour was free and the butler that took us around has worked there for 40 years!!! It was a wonderful tour and I will be going back in the spring. They have a garden tour then. They take you on a tour of the grounds. There are magnolia trees, lilac bushes, lilies, roses and spearmint. I can't wait! I am looking forward to seeing all the beautiful flowers and maybe learning something too.

The upstairs was blocked off. You can only tour
the downstairs.
