Governor's Mansion


The Washington State Governor's Mansion is located on the crest of Capitol Point, with a panoramic view of the city of Olympia, the Capitol grounds, the southernmost waters of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. The red brick Georgian-style building is surrounded by sloping lawns, evergreen trees and flowering shrubs. Visitors to the gracious residence view handsomely coordinated public rooms furnished principally with antiques from the English Regency and American Federal periods. Volunteer Docents from the Governor’s Mansion Foundation offer tours of the Washington State Governor’s Mansion on most Wednesdays throughout the year (except holidays and the month of August). Tours are free and last approximately 45-60 minutes. Please schedule a tour request by calling (360) 902-8880 to reserve a date and time to tour the Mansion or email
