When the Governorâ€™s Palace was completed in 1722, the residence of Virginiaâ€™s royal governor was considered one of the finest buildings in British North America. The elegant and imposing residence of seven royal governors and the commonwealthâ€™s first two state governorsâ€”Patrick Henry and Thomas Jeffersonâ€”was reconstructed on its original foundations and opened to the public in April 1934.
