Governor's Mansion [MS]

The Governor's Mansion is a 1842 Greek Revival Mansion which has served as Mississippi's gubernatorial residence since its erection. Most furnishings are Empire style (1810-1830), although the site also contains French Restoration (1830-1850), Rococo Revival (1850-1870), and Renaissance Revival (1860-1880) pieces.

The mansion offers period rooms and guided tours. Reservations must be made for groups of 10 or more. As the residence may be closed for state events, it is suggested that visitors call ahead to confirm that tours will be offered on the day which they wish to visit. The website offers small galleries of furniture images arranged by style, as well as floor plans.
