This is a nice place to visit and see the architecture and to see how well the house has been kept. The area outside is landscaped very nicely.

I have been there for both inside dinners and outside receptions. It is old but well kept. The Governor does not live there by his choice. The grounds are beautiful and well kept and there are always people fishing in the accessible ponds on property.
