“Very good tour guide”

Original Governor's Mansion
Reviewed 13 August 2017

This is a moderately interesting home in terms of both architecture and history. We were lucky to have an extremely erudite guide who made sense out of a good bit of Helena history. There is currently a scattering of artifacts throughout the house related to WWI, and he was able to talk about those in detail as well.

Things are very easy to find in Helena. We were there on a Monday and unfortunately it was closed but the outside is very elegant. We would have loved to have seen the inside but we will try again another time.

The Victorians of Helena have their own charm. While back East (Chicago to Boston) the wealthy were building mega houses, the people in Helena were building classic Victorian houses that had the charm of family living and the elegance of simple beauty. The craftsman in this home is amazing!

Visited the historic home on a free tour day. Our guide provided a terrific look into the architecture and daily life of early governors. A must see for history buffs.

This tour was very interesting. The rich history behind the mansion was very interesting. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating. Being from Dayton, OH, it was a surprise to know that the guide was from Kettering, OH.
