The Governor’s Mansion
A historic monument from the days of British occupation, turned into a town hall
The Governor’s Mansion is a stately, three story mansion built in the farmhouse style, painted white with dark accents. The yard it sits upon is richly shaded by a great number of old trees, though the grass is somewhat lacking thanks to the paved parking area and driveway. Very little signage sits outside, with the exception of a subtle plaque in the front lawn notifying the reader of the site’s historic nature.
Built over two hundred years ago, the mansion was indeed the residence of the British governor for the area. During the American Civil War, it served as a medical retreat for wounded.
