The  Governor’s Residence, 1006 Summit Avenue, St. Paul

The Governor’s Residence, located at 1006 Summit Avenue in Saint Paul, is the official home of the governor’s family.  The 20-room, 16,000-square-foot English Tudor mansion was donated to the State of Minnesota by the family that owned it in 1965.  Designed by Minneapolis architect William Channing Whitney, the residence has nine bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and nine fireplaces, and it sits on 1.5 acres of land.  Five people work at the residence: manager, assistant manager, chef, housekeeper, and groundskeeper.  Free guided public tours are typically available during the summer months; for more information see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minnesota_Governor's_Residence
