Old Governor's Mansion

Old Governor's Mansion Review

This grand 1838 Greek Revival mansion became Sherman's headquarters during the war. His soldiers are said to have tossed government documents out of the windows and fueled their fires with Confederate money. Home to 10 Georgian governors, the mansion has undergone a painstaking $10 million restoration. Guided tours of the building, now a museum, are given daily, on the hour. A special tour, "Labor Behind the Veil," highlights the daily lives of slaves in the mansion, and is available by request with advanced reservation.
