The History

Nestled between Springfield’s brick-paved streets and just blocks from the State Capitol, the Illinois Governor's Mansion is the third-oldest state governor's residence in the United States and the oldest gubernatorial residence in the Midwest. It has been home to Illinois Governors and their families since its construction was completed in 1855.


The property was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. Join the Illinois Governor’s Mansion Association to help preserve this important landmark.

Mansion Exhibitions
