Nebraska Governor's Mansion

The Nebraska Governor's residence is located just south of the Capitol. The home was built in 1957 in the Georgian Colonial-style. The home of Nebraska 's first family features a doll collection of the state's first ladies in their inaugural gowns.

A superb silver service from the battleship U.S.S. Nebraska, needlepoint chair cushions in the state dining room, custom woven carpets and elegant reception rooms highlight the home. Groups of 10 or more are requested to make reservations.
