Our Governors' Mansions

Hardback
In this book, for the first time, all of the official governors' mansions currently in use in the United States are given a lavish pictorial presentation. Each of these important state buildings has a separate full-color section devoted to it, picturing the house's public and private rooms, its exterior and grounds, and the artworks and furnishings within it. The mansions' stories are told in a lively and engaging text that mixes fascinating historical anecdotes with detailed architectural description and gives close attention to the houses' interior decoration, furniture, and memorabilia. This book will be of interest not only to history buffs but also to designers and home decorators.
