Time Out says

Since 1856, the governors and their families have made their home at the Texas Governor's Mansion, making it the oldest governor's mansion this side of the Mississippi River. The Greek Revival style house is located just outside the Capitol grounds and boasts 25 rooms and 7 bathrooms. Back in 2008, it suffered an arson attack that actually remains unsolved to this day, but thanks to community support it has been restored to its full grandeur. While you can't just walk in and take a look around (it's still a residence, after all), you can reserve a spot on one of their free, 30-minute guided tours.
