The Governor's Mansion
The Georgia Governor's Mansion serves as the primary residence for the presiding governor and first lady of Georgia. Built in 1968, the Georgia Governor's Mansion spans 18 acres of wooded grounds off West Paces Ferry Road in Atlanta, Georgia. The beautiful 24,000 square-foot house is designed to mimic Greek Revival architecture and is adorned with 30 Doric columns along the front porch.
