Masks and freedom go hand in hand.

General information

Built on the Susquehanna River, the Pennsylvania Governor’s Residence is a two and one half story Georgian Style home. Designed by architect George Ewing and completed in the 1968, the 28,600 square foot home has 32 rooms. It has served as home to eight Governors. The first floor of the Residence serves as a museum, housing art, decorative art, and artifacts reflecting the rich history and cultural heritage of our magnificent commonwealth. The second floor historically served as private living quarters for the Governor and First Lady. The American and Pennsylvania flags were first raised at the executive mansion in February 1969, and the first tour day was in June of that same year. Governor Tom Wolf and First Lady Frances Wolf continue to live in Tom’s childhood home in York County, but utilize the residence for official functions, meetings and other events.
