Community encouraged to visit Governor’s Mansion before historic treasure closes for renovations

The California State Historic Governor’s Mansion Foundation, in partnership with California State Parks, encourage the community to visit the historic Governor’s Mansion State Historic Park (SHP) in December before it temporarily closes to the public on January 1, 2015, for extensive renovations and rehabilitation efforts.

Throughout the month of December, the Governor’s Mansion SHP is open for guided tours on Wednesdays through Sundays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.   Plus, on two Saturdays – December 6 and 13 – guests can enjoy the Mansion during the special “Christmas Memories” event that will include elaborate holiday decorations, festive live holiday music, children’s activities, captivating storytellers and docents in period attire sharing holiday-related stories of past governors and their families.   Also, Santa and Mrs. Claus will make special visits to the Mansion to meet excited little ones and be available for holiday photographs.
