    The Year of the Virginia Historic Home

    by Casey | Posted on October 25th, 2012

    Virginia celebrates historic homes each and every year since the state is considered the “Mother of Presidents.” We boast eight United States Presidents total and enjoy the homes of six of them. However, 2013 marks the bicentennial of another historic Virginia home – the Executive Mansion.

    Governor McDonnell has proclaimed 2013 the Year of the Virginia Historic Home to recognize more than 100 historic homes across Virginia along with the Executive Mansion, the residence of the Governor of Virginia (the Mansion’s 54th) and his family. The Mansion is the oldest occupied Governor’s home in the United States.

    Executive Mansion tours are available Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 2 to 4 p.m., but are subject to change without notice. Tours are free and last about 25 minutes. Please kindly make a reservation if you have more than 10 people in your party (no more than two months in advance). Smaller groups are taken on a first come, first served basis. Tours are limited to 15 people.
