Does Alaska’s governor live in a house, or a mansion?
The big white structure on Calhoun Avenue is big enough to be considered a mansion, and when Congress appropriated money for its construction in 1912 the funds were designated for an “executive mansion.”
But Gov. Sean Parnell, the current occupant, and First Lady Sandy Parnell, think the current usage of “Governor’s House” might be the best way to go.
“We call it the Governor’s House, but it started out an executive mansion,” said Sandy Parnell.
