Michigan Governor’s Residence, Lansing, MI

Detroit Home Award Winner

The Governor’s official residence in Lansing, MI has an impressive architectural pedigree. Built in 1957 by famed architect Wallace Frost, this California ranch-style home underwent extensive interior and exterior renovations that spanned two years. Funding for the renovations came through the generosity of private donors and in-kind contributions, which were raised by the nonprofit Governor’s Residence Foundation. A determined effort was made in selecting building materials and furnishings that represented Michigan’s industries and suppliers. Artwork throughout the house was loaned by Michigan artists in an ongoing artist rotation program. The house has private living quarters for the first family as well as spaces for public functions. The house has two guest powder rooms, a His and a Hers. The Women's “Power” room references the many photographs of nominees and inductees into the Michigan Women’s Hall of Fame.
