The Governor's Mansion is a beautiful home located in a residential area of Montgomery. As of this writing, tours are given on Tuesday's and Thursday's from 10-2, so unfortunately, we weren't able to do a tour since we were in Montgomery over the weekend.

I did not take a tour, instead i just drove by and snapped a couple of photos. So i cant comment on the interior, but the exterior is beautiful. Definitely worth a quick drive by.

The house is kept in such good shape and it truly belong to Alabamians. Mrs. Riley opened the House up often during her husband's governorship. She wrote a great cookbook.
