I received a last minute invitation to visit the Missouri Governor at his home in Jefferson City, Missouri for some Christmas Cheer! This is the view of building from new the bluffs where it overlooks the Missouri River. Since it was built in 1871, the Missouri Governor’s Mansion has been the official residence of Missouri’s Governors. On a visit to the home, guests can travel back in time and experience a piece of the state’s past.

The Missouri Governor’s Mansion is one of the oldest and most beautiful governors’ homes in the U.S., and the public can enjoy the history that is showcased within its walls. The home hosts more than 60,000 visitors annually.
