Governor's Mansion Preservation Act

Yesterday, First Lady Dianne Bentley joined her husband, Governor Robert Bentley at the Capitol for a bill signing. This bill (HB 437) is related to the Alabama Governor's Mansion and is of special interest to many groups of people. The "First Lady Dianne Bentley Governor's Mansion Preservation Act" creates a body responsible for maintaining and restoring the mansion to its proper historical state. Many states across the nation have similar protection policies for their mansions, including Texas.
A group known as "Friends of the Governor's Mansion" will be aiding Mrs. Bentley as she works to preserve this beautiful home and historical building in Montgomery. Anyone interested in helping is welcome to join them.

The Governor's Mansion is open for tours on Tuesdays and Thursdays by appointment.
