This home is occupied by each serving governor. It is a lovely view of history and a beautiful home. Located in downtown Jackson on old bricked streets, it is a perfect setting for the leader of the state.

This was an interesting part of history. Not a place to sit so if you are needing to sit you must go back out of the mansion.
