“Texas is the finest portion of the globe that has ever blessed my vision.” – Sam Houston
While I love that quote, I would take it one step further . . . the Governor’s Mansion is one of the finest places on the finest portion of the globe.
Today we celebrated the fine restoration of the house Abner Cook built back in 1836. Today is a day I’ll remember fondly for the rest of my life.
As I gave media tours today and walked through the meticulously restored rooms that look identical to the way they did before the fire, it felt like seeing an old friend. It felt like I had never left.
It was an exciting, historic day. I am confident the home will be standing in all its grandeur for the next 150 years.
