didn't see this anywhere else, so I don't think it's a duplicate...

how very very sad, such a beautiful historic building!!!

From the article with the video:::::
"Construction on the Texas Governor's Mansion began in 1854. Bad weather delayed construction, and the mansion opened six months behind schedule on June 14, 1856. Master builder Abner Cook built the mansion in the Greek Revival architectural style. The original mansion blueprint included 6,000 square feet and was divided into 11 rooms and no bathrooms inside the main house. In 1914, the mansion's only major structural change occurred with the addition of a Conservatory. The 1914 construction increased the mansion's footprint to 8.920 square feet, with 25 rooms and 7 bathrooms.
To date, 40 governors have occupied the mansion. It is the fourth oldest governor's mansion in the United States that has been continuously occupied by a chief executive."
