MONTGOMERY – Gov. and Mrs. Robert Bentley recently announced the Governor’s Mansion will be open to members of the public for Christmas Open House tours from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 10; and Monday, Dec. 17.
Decorators from across the state have volunteered their time to adorn the Governor’s Mansion and the neighboring Hill House in Christmas splendor for the tours.
