Governor's Mansion Open for Public Tours

Posted:

NASHVILLE, Tenn.- For the first time in eight years, the Governor's mansion now has someone living in it.

Governor Haslam and the First Lady, Memphis native Crissy Garrett Haslam moved into their new home on Thursday. The residence sits in Oak Hill, just five miles south of the Capitol. The mansion was built in 1929, but it wasn't acquired by the state for another 20 years.

Former First Lady Andrea Conte worked to renovate the Governor's mansion, including the addition of a controversial bunker, but the former First Lady and Governor Phil Bredesen didn't live here, since they already had a home in Nashville. 

The new Governor and First Lady, though, will make the governor's residence their new home. They are hosting the open house of the Executive Residence beginning at 11 Sunday morning.

Shuttle services will be provided for all guests, parking is not available on the grounds of the Governor's mansion itself.

From 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Sunday afternoon, attendees may park at Father Ryan High School at 700 Norwood Drive, or Franklin Road Academy on 4700 Franklin Road.

From 12:30 to 3:00, parking is available at First Presbyterian Church on 4815 Franklin Road.

The event is not ticketed, but an RSVP is requested.
