News from the Executive Mansion

New Web Presence Launched for Bicentennial

Capitol Square
The Executive Mansion. Designed by Alexander Parris and completed in 1813, it is the oldest occupied governor's mansion in the United States.

Mansion E-News [click to read] offers a lot of interesting information. In 2013, Virginia's Executive Mansion, the oldest occupied governor's residence in all the fifty states-marks its 200th anniversary. To celebrate this bicentennial milestone, a yearlong series of special events are planned at the Mansion and on Capitol Square. Some events are inspired by historical occasions such as the antebellum band concerts and the informal receptions that Virginians have long enjoyed.
