Governor’s Residence and Heritage Garden

Governor’s Residence and Heritage Garden

Fran and Mike DeWineThe Ohio Governor's Residence and Heritage Garden provides people of all ages with educational opportunities. The residence is a beautiful historic home with many stories to tell. The Jeffrey family originally built the house in 1925, and descendants of the family donated it to the state in 1955. Since then, eleven governor's families have lived at the residence and contributed to its rich history. The residence is also filled with examples of Ohio art and industry.

The Heritage Garden provide a microcosm within which to view Ohio's natural habitats. Each garden represents a physiographic region of the state and includes plants that grow there natively. The residence gardens give visitors a unique glimpse into the natural history and current status of Ohio's environmental landscape.

Tours are available on Wednesdays, by appointment only. Reservations must be made at least one week in advance. Please call 614-728-5611 or email residence@governor.ohio.gov to schedule.
