Constructed in 1884, the Former Governors' Mansion housed 20 chief executives between 1893 and 1960. Unique room exhibits feature the restoration process, architectural style changes, and furniture used by several governors.
The site consists of a large two and one-half story, restored Victorian house and a carriage house.

It was built as a private residence by Asa Fisher. At various times he was a wholesale liquor dealer, register of the Bismarck Land Office, and president of the First National Bank. He sold this house to the state for $5,000 in 1893.
