Facts

  • This is the oldest executive house west of the Mississippi River and the 4th oldest governor's mansion in the United States. It is also the longest inhabited residence in Texas.
  • This is the second executive mansion in Texas, and first after Texas became a state. The first was the President's House built in 1842 while Texas was still an independent republic. That structure later fell into disrepair and was demolished.
  • In the early morning hours of June 8, 2008, an arson attack heavily damaged the mansion. It reportedly started on the porch area and quickly reached the 2nd floor. The building had been vacant during the renovation project and all furnishings had been moved to another location.
  • Listed as a Texas Historical Landmark in 1962.
  • Originally built with 6,000 square feet, in 1914 a restoration project added 2,920 square feet with a new addition to the west. This added 7 bathrooms to the mansion which had not originally been included. It also increased the number of rooms from 11 to 25.
