State-ly Homes: Exploring U.S. Governors’ Mansions and Gardens
Programs offered weekly March 5, 2024, through March 27, 2024

Homes to generations of state leaders and their families, governors’ mansions have been staples of the American landscape since the country’s founding. From refurbished sites of historical significance to bespoke masterpieces, the grand homes and gardens of U.S. governors offer a unique glimpse into how architecture, interior design, and landscapes can serve a civic purpose.

Join Morven, New Jersey’s first governors’ Mansion, as we explore four current U.S. governors’ mansions, traveling from New Jersey to Virginia, Hawai’i, and Maine, and learn from experts about how these spaces were created to embody the state and the people they seek to represent.

First House: Virginia’s Executive Mansion (Wednesday, March 13)

Washington Place: The People’s Home of Hawai’i (Wednesday, March 20,)
