South Carolina Governor's Mansion

Built in 1855 to house officers of a military academy, the state's governors have lived here since 1868. The renovation completed in 2001 added 5,000 sq. ft. to the mansion. First floor tours include the state dining room, two drawing rooms, the library and the smaller palmetto dining room, all furnished with period antiques. Unique South Carolina-made furniture includes the Railroad Baron's bed, a fine example of the American Empire period. Portraits of some of the state's former governors hang in the Hall of Governors. The complex also includes the Boylston House and the Lace House. The gardens are open year round.
