Governor's Mansion State Historic Park
The Governor's mansion, built in 1877, has 14-feet ceilings, crystal chandeliers, ornate moldings, Persian carpets, Italian marble fireplaces and French mirrors. Many Governors' wives, including Nancy Reagan, have remodeled the home. Among the famous guests who stayed in the mansion were Teddy Roosevelt and Jack Kennedy. Each room is furnished from a different era, so the tour is also a history of furniture. Tours are on the hour and guides must accompany visitors.
Im not the kind of person that rates anything highly, and visiting some old house would never make a list of "must do", but this one is. The house was very interesting on many levels. The guide we had (just 2 people in the group) was rhe most awesome guy for that tour, witty, funny, smart, historical, wonderfully warm. I wish I could remember his name...........I still laugh about his "Pardee girl line.
My husband and I did the Halloween Tour. We liked it a lot. The house was dark except for flashlights held by docents dressed in costumes and hallowwen lights and pumpkins. And there was even a body under Jerry Browns bed. LOL They had a fortune teller and a story teller outside. A great part of California history. I'd love to live in the house. Very cool to see the dining room where President Kennedy had breakfast with Pat Brown. It was worth the $5. Especially since they are remodeling and hope to open the 3rd floor in the future.
I liked it very much it wasin my opinion very intresting. And not only that but i had won a essay contest at my school and i won an award from the mansion. Inside they have portrayed allthe recent winners on a wall. And surely you will find my name. Any way i loved it not only because i had accomplished something but i loved to learn more about there old life style and not any life style...the governors lifestyle
I went to this place first time this week and it is ok to visit. But they charge $3.00 for visit? even for kids?
There is nothing in tthat house, but when you think about some famous people lived in the house, it makes you feel like there is something.
The tour was fine but i found the place quite boring. I didn't realy conect to me i felt more like ok cool so this is where they lived, so how does this connect to me? The truth is that it dosn't its just a big house with a bunch of old furnature in it.
I liked seeing where the governors used to live and what the wives did decorating-wise with the house. I went during a weekday and was the only person on the tour, which was very informative. Worth going to check out at least once.
