What was Old is New Again

California - Governor's Mansion, Sacremento

For: US to US Traveling Envelope Round Robin - Group 40
Notes: This is the Governor's Mansion in Sacramento, California.   It was built in 1877, and purchased by the state in 1903.  It housed 13 California governors from 1903 to 1967, including Ronald Reagan, who lived there for four month.  After the Reagans moved out, the mansion was turned into a museum.  It is no longer a museum, however, as Jerry Brown, California's current governor, is moving in to the house (or possibly has already moved in).  Interestingly, this is Brown's second time as governor; he previously held the position from 1975-1983.  When California passed a term limit law in 1990, Brown and the other former governors living at the time were grandfathered in, so they were still eligible for reelection.
