Description 

The Governor's Mansion is the finest example of the work of William Nichols in the domestic Greek Revival style. One of only four continuously used governor's mansions in the U.S. that dates before the Civil War, this is by far the most architecturally distinguished. -- Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS MS-67)
