The Governor’s Mansion were designed by architect William Nichols (1780-1853), a native of Bath, England. William Nichols designed the Mansion in the period’s most popular architectural style: Greek Revival. Architectural historians consider the Mississippi Governor’s Mansion to be one of the finest surviving examples of the Greek Revival style in the United States. For security reasons, the Mansion grounds are not open for touring and public restrooms are not available. The Mansion is closed to the public the last two weeks in December. The Mansion may be closed at other times for official state functions and other events hosted by the governor.
