ABOUT

The Mansion serves as the official residence of the First Family; a working office for staff; a museum for visitors, and a venue for educational, professional, community, and civic events.

Over the years, Illinois governors have hosted U.S. presidents, ambassadors, and, most importantly, generations of Illinois residents at the People’s House.

The Mansion underwent a spectacular, privately funded three-year renovation and reopened as the People’s House on July 14, 2018. More than a renewal of building and landscape, the purpose of the Governor's Mansion has been re-imagined. It is now a place where visitors can get a glimpse of Illinois history, view its fine and decorative art, and experience its long-heralded hospitality.
