MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) -Gov. Kay Ivey will open the Governor’s Mansion for candlelight excursions on the very first three Monday nights in December from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
“This is the people’s house, and I want to share it with them all through this special Christmas time,” mentioned Ivey.
The Governor’s Mansion is a 1907 Colonial Revival house situated at 1142 South Perry St. in Montgomery and has served as the formal residence for governors of Alabama considering that 1951.
“The 5 general public rooms are open up. That would be the lobby, the dining room, the little parlor, the drawing-place, and the sunroom,” Michael Walczak, the Executive Director of the Governor’s Mansion Authority, defined the upstairs part of the mansion is the Governor’s personal home.
“It’s not open just at night, we have quite a few situations that go on right here,” stated Nicole Owens, the Alabama Tourism Department’s Governor’s Mansion tour supervisor. “So we hope lots of, lots of men and women see this.”
Tickets for the excursions are readily available no cost of demand at the gift shop in advance of the excursions each day. The gift store is located at 30 Finley Ave. across the street from the aspect entrance of the mansion.
