Some news from the most excellent Sacramento History Blog:
The Sacramento Old City Association (SOCA) and the Governor’s Manison State Historic Park invite you to a sneak preview of the current 3rd floor restoration at the Governor’s Mansion, never before open to the public, this Saturday, May 10. Recent efforts have unveiled stunning original 1877 detail inside this historic house.
The Governor’s Mansion was originally constructed as the home of Albert Gallatin in 1877. It was California’s official governor’s residence from 1903 until 1967. Over the past year, scaffolding has concealed the extensive restoration work going on outside the mansion, and inside, the third floor has undergone a similar transformation. This event includes a complete tour of the mansion, including the newly accessible third floor.
Governor’s Mansion State Historic Park is located at 1526 H Street in Sacramento.
Admission: FREE to SOCA members, $20 to non-members (or join SOCA for $25.)
RSVP REQUIRED: Call (916) 455-2935. Space on this tour is EXTREMELY LIMITED. All ages are welcome. The event begins at 5:30 PM and will last until about 7:30 PM.
Donations encouraged; will go to the 3rd floor restoration fund. Refreshments will be served.
