The Governor's Residence

Built on the Susquehanna River, the Pennsylvania Governor’s Residence is a 29​,000-square-foot Georgian Style home designed by architect George Ewing. Completed in 1968, it has served as a home to eight governors and their families.

The first floor of the Residence houses both temporary and permanent art exhibits, decorative art, and artifacts reflecting the rich history and cultural heritage of our magnificent commonwealth.

The American and Pennsylvania flags were first raised at the executive mansion in February 1969, and the first day of public tours was in June of that same year.
