Tour the splendid governor's mansions of Kentucky, Missouri and New Jersey, executive residences that reflect the position of their residents and the rich heritage of their states.
In the colonial era, "palaces" were built at the public expense to house the governors appointed by the Crown. Today, all but four states maintain governor's mansions, and they are among the most impressive and important homes in America.
AMERICA'S CASTLES® features the halls and grounds of three of the most remarkable of these historic homes in this exclusive look. Go inside the oldest executive residence still in use in America the 1798 colonial that is now the home of Kentucky's Lieutenant Governor and tour the current governor's mansion, modeled after Marie Antoinette's villa near Versailles. Perched on a riverside bluff, the majestic home of the Missouri Governor is considered one of the finest examples of French-Italian architecture in the nation. And get a behind-the-scenes look at Drumthwacket, the 1835 New Jersey mansion that is the only such home not located in its state's capital.
