Constructed in 1924, the Mahonia Hall is the state of Oregon?s official governor?s mansion after its acquisition in 1988. It is located in the city of Salem, and was originally owned by Thomas and Edna Livesley.

Mahonia Hall got its name from Mahonia aquiforlium, the Latin name of the Oregon-grape, which is also the state flower of Oregon. It was the winning entry to a contest held by The Oregonian, made by a 13-year-old Eric Johnson.

The Mahonia Hall is made in the Tudor style architecture with timber. It was first used by former Governor Neil Goldschmidt and family while he was in office in the late 1980s to early 1990s. It was also listed on the National Register of Historic Places while Governor Goldschmidt was taking residence on the building.
