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.

From Booklist:

This lusciously illustrated large-size book is inviting to learn from and to browse. From one end of the country to the other, from top to bottom, the authors travel to every state capital to give a tour of governors' mansions. From classic Greek Revival motif to soaring Second Empire design to long-and-low ranch style, each executive residence is distinctive in its own way, and each has a story behind it--of its design, construction, and usage over the years. And the authors tell each individual house's story with verve. Once readers open this book's covers to zero in on their home state, they will find it difficult not to keep reading about every one of these fascinating dwellings. For travelers as well as history and architecture buffs. Brad Hooper
