Ranking as the second oldest executive residence in the US that continuously serves and functions as a gubernatorial home since its completion, the Mississippi Governor?s Mansion is a real gem. Located in Jackson, Mississippi, the building was done in 1839 and initially occupied in 1842. It was designed by William Hull and William Nichols in Greek Revival style, which was the most popular motif at the time.

Called by many experts and architectural historians to be the finest extant example of the Greek Revival style in the US, the Mississippi Governor?s Mansion was renovated at least twice in the past. Its participation during the Civil War is not thoroughly clear, although, there is evidence that Union troops have stopped and entertained themselves on the site at least once.

The Mississippi Governor?s Mansion is both a National Historic Landmark and Mississippi Landmark.
