Governor plans holiday open house

Posted: Friday, December 04, 2009

ANCHORAGE - Gov. Sean Parnell and First Lady Sandy Parnell will open the Governor's Mansion in Juneau to the public next week.

The Governor's Annual Christmas and Holiday Open House is scheduled for 3-6 p.m. Tuesday.

People with special accessibility needs can come a half our early by contacting the governor's office.

The Governor's House was built in 1912. On New Years Day 1913, the first Open House was held by Territorial Governor Walter Eli Clark and his family.

Other than two years during World War II, an open house has taken place every year since then.

More than 3,000 people attended in 2008.

Members of Parnell's cabinet will serve hot apple cider and holiday treats to guests waiting in line outside.
