Colorado Governor's Mansion
Designed and built for the Cheeseman family in 1908, and later purchased by the Boettcher family, this mansion was deeded to the state in 1959. The Georgian Revival residence became the Governor's Mansion in 1960 after considerable controversy. Ornate fountains, gardens and a substantial collection of European and Asian artwork and antiques grace the home. One main attraction, the Drawing Room, houses a Waterford crystal chandelier that once hung in the White House in Washington, D.C. Admission is free.
We toured the mansion this afternoon and had a wonderful time. The guide was knowledgeable, friendly, and fully answered all our questions. To top it off, the tour was, of course, free, and the air conditioning worked perfectly -- a great respite from the 90+ degree heat. We all learned new information about Colorado and her governors. Great tour.
