Help Rebuild the Texas Governor’s Mansion
On June 8, 2008, the Texas Governor’s Mansion suffered a devastating fire due to arson. Even though the Mansion was empty and all its prized contents in storage, the building still suffered significant structural and architectural damage.
You can be a part of the historic effort to rebuild the Mansion. Please consider making a IRS approved* tax-deductible donation to the restoration fund. Great or small, each donation will make a difference in returning the Governor’s Mansion to its former grandeur.
Thank you for donating. For more information, call 1-866-771-5829 or visit TexasGovernorsMansion.org.
