Old Governor's Mansion Revitalization Project

Mansion Celebration iconOn November 18, 2008, First Lady Jane Beshear announced plans for the revitalization of the historic Old Governor's Mansion on High Street in downtown Frankfort.

Through a complex design entry process, talented volunteers from across Kentucky were invited to compete in 2009 for the opportunity to showcase their designs and redecorate history in the nation's oldest official executive residence.  A weeklong celebration culminating in a grand gala preceded the unveiling of the redecorated mansion.

The Kentucky Executive Mansions Foundation, Inc. (KEMFI), in partnership with the Governor's Office, KyEHC and platinum event sponsor L.V. Harkness & Company will be coordinating the celebration and showcase.  For more information please visit the Kentucky Mansion Celebration website.
