Public tours at Kansas governor’s mansion, Cedar Crest, to resume

March 25, 2011


— The doors at the Kansas governor's mansion will be open to the public again in two weeks.

Gov. Sam Brownback's spokeswoman says tours of the mansion will begin on April 4. The tours had been postponed in late December as former Gov. Mark Parkinson's administration left and Brownback's administration moved in.

The mansion, called Cedar Crest, was built in 1928 and became the governor's official residence in 1962.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that public tours are every Monday from 1 to 3:30 p.m. and Tuesdays only by appointment. Tours start every half hour and last about 30 minutes.
