Illinois Governor's Mansion

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 has just undergone a spectacular, privately funded 3-year renovation and reopened as the People’s House on July 14, 2018.

More than a renewal of building and landscape, its purpose has been re-imagined. It is now a place where visitors can glimpse Illinois history, witness its artistic side, and experience its long-heralded hospitality.
