Governor's Mansion

Completed in 1925, this home has welcomed national and global dignitaries, ambassadors, public officials and corporate leaders.  Notable features are the reception foyer's glistening checkerboard floor made with black Belgium and white Tennessee marble, the drawing room wall panels decoratively painted using a trompe l'oeil (literal translation is "trick of the eye") technique to create the illusion of raised center panels and panel gram molding, and the ballroom's classic white marble mantel, from an old Irish castle.
