After completing a thorough and sensitive restoration of the home in the summer of 2012, the State Preservation Board is responsible for the ongoing preservation and maintenance of the Governor’s Mansion. Texas’ First Family is once again in residence at the Mansion, continuing the 156-year tradition of the Mansion as the oldest continuously-occupied executive residence west of the Mississippi.
