Governor’s Mansion


To replace the “Granite Mansion” in Ansley Park, architect Thomas Bradbury was hired to design the fourth official and current Governor’s Mansion in Buckhead.

The 24,000-square-foot, three-level 30-room mansion officially opened in 1968. Lester Maddox was the first governor to occupy the mansion, which has since housed eight governors, including Jimmy Carter and current governor Nathan Deal. The Greek Revival-style home has 30 Doric columns made from California redwoods around the porches and Federal-period furnishings inside.

Memories of the Mansion, co-authored by First Lady Sandra Deal, tells the history of the mansion.
