Built by silver-mining tycoon Thomas Kearns in 1902, this limestone structure—reminiscent of a French château with all its turrets and balconies—is now the official residence of Utah's governor. In its early days the mansion was visited by President Theodore Roosevelt and other dignitaries from around the world. The mansion was faithfully restored after Christmas lights caused a fire in 1993 that destroyed much of the interior.

This is the Governor's Mansion for the state of Utah. It's a gorgeous historic house, lovingly restored after a devastating fire several years ago. Extremely limited opening hours make seeing this place a chore, but it's worth the hassle.
