Governor John Hickenlooper wishes to express his sincere thank you for your interest in the Colorado Governor's Residence, and encourage you to come visit this elegant house, known fondly as "Colorado's Home." Built as a private residence in 1908, the house has been available for use by Governor's since 1960, both as a home and for official Governor's Functions. The 2006 renovation of the original Carriage House, and additions of the Tebo Visitors Center and Viki and Jack Thompson Gardens, have brought this stately house to a new level of beauty and service to the people of Colorado. The Residence is open free-of-charge for scheduled tours, and also hosts special public events. Non-profit organizations, government offices, corporations and individuals may, for a fee, use the Residence or Carriage House to host private events.
