This was a new venture for us in that we had only been inside one other active mansion in our times. WE made the call, and the Administrator had a time slot for us. The tour and discussion of the mansion, the construction, and Governor is about 40 minutes. This was a nice interlude form normal museums and the like. This mansion was built in 1956, and Gov Scott now occupies. Gov Jeb Bush added a porch and portico out back. You see the actual desk they work, and living quarters downstairs, ' mostly for entertainment. The families live upstairs. Overall, it is not very big, and that surprised me, not ostentatious. Gardens out back are nice.
They may have spots to tour Monday-Friday, but events and other times it may not be open. The tour is free.
