The fourth season of free weekly tours at the South Dakota Governor’s Mansion will begin next month.
First Lady Linda Daugaard said she and the Governor are happy to again open the home on the shore of Capitol Lake to the public.
“The Governor’s mansion belongs to the people of South Dakota, and Dennis and I invite every South Dakotan to enjoy this special home,” Mrs. Daugaard said. “We are pleased to host a fourth year of summer tours, and will have some special items on display in honor of the state’s 125th anniversary this year.”
Beginning June 4, weekly public tours will be conducted each Wednesday in June, July and August.
The 30-minute tours will begin at 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. CDT and will be conducted by volunteers, including the First Lady. Tour groups will consist of up to 30 people.
Public tour tickets, at no charge, must be obtained in advance and will be available only from the Pierre Chamber of Commerce. Those interested in a tour should call the Chamber at 605-224-7361.
