Welcome to the Governor’s Residence at the Boettcher Mansion!

The mission of the Governor's Residence Preservation Fund is to preserve the historic Governor's Residence at the Boettcher Mansion and bring it into full use and enjoyment for Colorado residents. Education Programs, public programs and events are statewide, inclusive and non-partisan. In nine years we have hosted over 100,000 visitors to the Residence for public tours, cultural arts and heritage celebrations and state industry events. Most of them were first-time visitors, delighted to enjoy the beauty of Colorado’s Home.

Visit Us!

We often refer to the Colorado Governor's Residence at "Colorado's Home" as is it an asset that belongs to the people of Colorado. We hope to welcome you into the home soon!

Preservation Projects!

  • The historic Gazebo on the East lawn is fully restored. Thanks to generous grants from the State Historic Fund, the Colorado Questers and Gates Family Foundation, this charming gazebo has new life. The original benches had been removed which caused the stone poritions of the gazebo to shift and twist under the weight of the iron dome. We repaired the stone pillars and reconstructed the benches so this Italian relic can live on for another 100 years.
  • We have recently completed Phase IV of the historic perimeter fence restoration project. This project included the restoration of the historic masonry, pillars, and decorative fence line around the mansion. To date we have completed restoration of the fence along Eighth Avenue and along Logan Street. This project was possible because of a grant from the State Historical Fund.
