Governor’s Mansion Tours by Candlelight Through December

The Alabama Governor’s Mansion is a stoic, white building situated just outside of downtown Montgomery near Old Cloverdale. It’s where Gov. Kay Ivey does most of her work, and home to lots of really cool Alabama history. Governor’s mansion tours will be available starting next week, and it’s completely free to the public; you’ll need to pick your free tickets up at the mansion’s gift shop, located at 30 Finley Ave. directly across the street.

You’ll have three opportunities to see the governor’s mansion in December:

  • December 3, 2018 – The Forest Avenue Choir will be performing throughout the evening.
  • December 10, 2018 – Albertville High School’s Show Choir and Diane Schultz will be performing in the second session of tours.

And the last tour will happen the week before Christmas and Christmas Eve.

  • December 17, 2018 – Prattville First nited Methodist Church and the Saint James Choir will take the stage.

As you might have noticed, each of these dates falls on a Monday, and that’s by design. Doors open at 5:30 pm, and tours begin to end around 7:30 pm.

“This is the people’s house and I want to share it with them during this special Christmas season,” Gov. Ivey said.

The tour will also visit neighboring Hill House, home to its own wealth of history and lore.

The Governer’s Mansion is a 1907 Colonial Revival House and is located at 1142 South Perry St. in Montgomery. It’s served as the official living space for Alabama’s heads-of-state since 1951.
