Jackson, Mississippi, is home to the second oldest continuously occupied governor’s mansion in the U.S. Restored in the early 1970s, it is now a National Historic Landmark and is elegantly celebrated in the new book The Mississippi Governor’s Mansion: Memories of the People’s Home.
Authored by Gov. Phil Bryant, this handsome 128-page volume offers an insider’s tour of the house, enhanced by more than 60 watercolor paintings created by the Mississippi artist Bill Wilson, who spent three years there as artist-in-residence. Former First Lady Deborah Bryant has written the book’s foreword.
