Wednesday, June 20, 2012 Austin, Texas Press Release Historic Furnishings Begin Move Back to Governor’s Mansion as Project Nears Completion
As the massive restoration of the Texas Governor’s Mansion nears completion, pieces from the historic Governor’s Mansion Collection are being moved back into the home. Owned by the state and the non-profit Friends of the Governor's Mansion, the collection was removed when the deferred maintenance project started in October 2007. The return of the collection marks the first stage of the move phase of the Governor’s Mansion restoration. The first family is expected to move back into the Governor’s Mansion, the home of 40 Texas governors, when the project is completed late next month.
