Located at 1526 H Street in Sacramento, the mansion has now returned to being the official residence for the state governor and will still be used for public and state ceremonies and events. George Pardee was the first governor to live in the house. Ronald Reagan, who lived in it for only four months, was the last governor to reside there for nearly 50 years. The mansion resumed its role as an official residence in 2015, when Governor Jerry Brown moved into the property with his wife.
The thirty-room, three story Second Empire-Italianate Victorian mansion was built in 1877 for local hardware merchant Albert Gallatin. The State of California purchased the house in 1903 to serve as a governor's mansion. Many furnishings remain from former governors, including Pardee's 1902 Steinway piano, velvet chairs and sofas belonging to Governor Hiram Johnson, and Persian rugs bought by the wife of Earl Warren. The structure has been renovated a number of times over the years. In 1967 after the Reagans moved out, the mansion was turned into a museum and opened to the public. The third floor of the mansion has been closed to the public since the 1990s.
Governor's Mansion Reviews
Una bellissima residenza che ha visto il susseguirsi di vari governatori della California. Vista solo da fuori perchè non avevamo tanto tempo a disposizione ma devo dire che ne colpisce per questa arc... more »A beautiful residence that has seen the succession of various governors of California. Seen only from the outside because we didn't have much time available but I have to say that it impresses for this very particular architecture and for the suggestive air that emanates. I think inside she's very beautiful. To go back.
こちらはカリフォルニア州知事が滞在するカリフォルニア州知事公館です。非常に立派な建物でびっくりしました more »This is the governor of California, where the governor of California is staying. I was surprised at a very splendid building.
Really nice to see. We only saw it from the outside because it was closed to the public. It's been a year since we've been here, Governor Browne used it as a residence.
The place was beautiful all decked out for Christmas.
