Governor’s Mansion State Historic Park

Governor's Mansion State Historic Park

While you cannot tour the inside currently, as current Governor Jerry Brown lives here, your group can still come to view the Governor's Mansion State Historic Park from the outside and get a little insight into the area's past political lives.

This building was first built in 1877 in the Italianate architecture style for Albert Gallatin. It features gorgeous gardens, a pool, and a patio outside, and fantastically intricate decor on the inside that includes Italian marble fireplaces and French gold mirrors. A glimpse inside, which you can see a bit of in the video below, is like a glimpse back in history, with several original furnishings and personal items from all the home's former residents. You can see  Governor Pardee's 1902 Steinway piano, a plum velvet sofa purchased by Mrs. Hiram Johnson in 1911, hand-tied Persian carpets acquired by Mrs. Earl Warren in 1943, and more!

There is a formal parlor, 2nd parlor, music room, dining room, kitchen, guest bedroom, blue room, master silver bath, porch room, children's room, and breakfast room within the stunning Victorian mansion, rooms that were all once utilized by former California Governor Ronald Reagan (1967).
