Additional Details:
Situated on a beautifully landscaped knoll on Jackson between Fourth and Fifth Streets is an imposing brick structure - The Executive Mansion, official home of Illinois Governors since 1855. The first official act of the General Assembly looking towards the erection of the present Governor's Mansion was approved in 1853. In November,1855, Governor Joel A. Matteson and his family moved into the newly completed structure, thus becoming the first Governor to occupy the Mansion, which since then has been the home of Illinois Governors.
