        Kentucky's Governor's Mansion Architecture

        This collection of images shows architecture from the Kentucky Governor's Mansion. The mansion is both a private home and a public building. These images are of some of the architecture found on the first floor, which hold the public reception and dining rooms as well as a ballroom.

        Completed in 1914, it was Kentucky's second official executive mansion. Designed in the Beaux Arts style popular in the late 19th and early 20th century, the mansion was patterned after France's Petit Trianon.
