Get ready to “Light Up the Night” at the Governor’s Mansion State Historic Park! California State Parks and the California State Historic Governor’s Mansion Foundation will soon celebrate the completion of the third floor restoration project, the installation of a state-of-the-art outdoor lighting system, and a new environmentally-friendly irrigation system for the Mansion gardens. As an event highlight, honored guest Governor Jerry Brown will officially “light up the night” by activating the eye-catching new lighting system once darkness falls. The celebratory event will include an outdoor reception and cocktail party with wine, tasty appetizers and entertaining live music. Plus, guests will have the opportunity to tour the newly restored third floor before it opens to the public. As background, a piece of the original crown molding was uncovered a number of years ago that revealed the original paint colors. The discovery, in turn, spurred a renovation effort to re-create the third floor to its original 1877 splendor. After careful analysis and research, a dedicated team of experts has worked for over a year to re-plaster the walls, re-create the original paint finishes, re-finish the decorative hard-wood floors in the billiard room and the ballroom, and had Victorian carpet custom made for stairs, hallway and sitting parlor. Don’t miss this very special event that is sure to “Light Up the Night” at the Governor’s Mansion State Historic Park!
