Governor's Mansion Marks Centennial in 2014
Kentucky will mark next month the 100th anniversary of the Kentucky governor’s mansion in Frankfort. Governor Steve Beshear’s office has announced that the state will commemorate the Jan. 20th anniversary with a year-long celebration.
“Jane and I have been fortunate to live at the Mansion and experience firsthand the stunning architecture and impeccable attention to detail that went in to constructing this historic landmark,” said Gov. Beshear. “But we are just the temporary residents. This magnificent building is truly the people’s house and belongs to every Kentuckian.”
The festivities will include both public and private events, all of which have been paid for with private donations, according to the governor’s office.
