Youth to Lead History Tours at Former Governors’ Mansion State Historic Site
BISMARCK - The public is invited to Youth-Led History Tours on July 18 from 1-3 p.m. at the Former Governors' Mansion State Historic Site, 320 E. Ave. B, Bismarck. Children will lead visitors on a tour through the Mansion, speaking as though they live in the Mansion while their father is serving as governor of North Dakota. The children being portrayed include the son of Frank White, the daughter of William Langer and more.
The tours will focus on discussion and participation in activities that occurred at the Mansion during the child’s historical period: music of the era, games that may have been played, and stories of people who had visited during that time. Children will also share additional information, such as what their school days involve, what the maids or butlers prepared for dinners, how they celebrated holidays, and what they do at the Mansion when they are not in school. Tour times will be flexible to accommodate visitors.
The Former Governors’ Mansion is a state historic site managed by the State Historical Society of North Dakota. Summer hours are Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday, noon-4 p.m. For more information about the Former Governors’ Mansion contact 701.328.9528.
