It’s officially August! Time for summer activities to start winding down and school activities to start gearing up. As school days are upon us, one particular activity everyone at the Governor’s Mansion loves is welcoming our school tours to this beautiful property. Since 2016, schools from all over the state of Louisiana have come to the Governor’s Mansion to learn about its unique history and taste one of the famous Mansion Cookies! Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the Mansion is quiet, and we await the final call that the pandemic is behind us so we can have our school tours and visitors back again.
Until we are all able to meet again in person, please visit our website to view the incredible tour video created by and starring the First Lady of Louisiana, Donna H. Edwards. The video goes behind the scenes on the Governor’s Mansion and tells the story of its rich history. You can view the tour by visiting: https://governorsmansion.org/.
We are also offering special LIVE virtual tours for school classes (Grades 1-5) in the Fall and possibly into the Spring! If you are currently a teacher in Louisiana who would like to learn more about signing your class up, please contact Jennifer Gomez, Mansion Director, at Jgomez@la.gov. Live tours will be offered from September – December and will have limited availability.
Have a great Fall Semester, and we hope to see you all again soon! Stay safe!
