Arkansas Governor's Mansion
1800 Center Street
Little Rock, Pulaski County, Arkansas, 72206
The Arkansas Governor's Mansion is the official residence of the Governor of Arkansas and Arkansas' First Family. Until 1950, the State of Arkansas did not have an official residence for its governor.
In 1947, Act 257 of the Arkansas General Assembly established a Governor's Mansion Commission. The site was the former location of the Arkansas School for the Blind, which had moved to new quarters near the city's Pulaski Heights neighborhood.
The architectural style of the mansion is Georgian Revival, colonial type.
The first Governor to reside here was Sidney S. McMath, who moved in on February 3, 1950. Significant additions to the mansion were completed during the administration of Michael Huckabee (1996-2007).
