Tennessee Governor's Mansion

The Tennessee Governor's Mansion, located in Nashville, Tennessee, is the official residence of the Governor of Tennessee and his family. This Georgian-style mansion was built for William Ridley Wills and his family in 1929; the state purchased it in 1949 and it has served as the home of Tennessee's governors since then.

To address these problems, the Memphis-based architectural firm Archimania was selected to design what was to be named Conservation Hall, which was completed during the spring of 2010. It is a 14,000-square-foot (1,300 m sq) mainly underground dining and meeting room capable of seating 160 people. The center of Conservation Hall is a glass-walled oval atrium that opens to the sky.The Tennessee Governor's Mansion is the only official executive residence in the United States to have an underground gathering space.The house is also known as the Tennessee Residence and is open to the public for tours by advance reservation.
