The Nevada Governor's Mansion is the official residence of the Governor of Nevada and the Governor's family. Reno architect George A. Ferris designed this Classical Revival (Neoclassical) style mansion.
The Governor's Mansion of the State of Nevada was built between 1908 and 1909.

State Assembly Bill 10, the "Mansion Bill," was passed in 1907 to secure a permanent site and residence for a Governor's Mansion. Mrs. T.B. Rickey sold the land where the mansion now stands to the State of Nevada for $10, and George A. Ferris, a Reno architect, designed the mansion with Classical Revival features and Georgian and Jeffersonian motifs, and a construction bid was awarded for $22,700.

The building was first opened to the public during an open house on New Year's Day, 1910.
