Crafters Bee and Social at Former Governors’ Mansion State Historic Site
BISMARCK – The 10th annual Crafters Bee and Social will be held at the Former Governors’ Mansion State Historic Site located at 320 E. Ave. B in Bismarck on Saturday, Jan. 21, 2017, from 1 to 4 p.m. Crafters and artists of all types are invited to bring a favorite project and spend the afternoon working on it while visiting with others. Beginners and the curious are welcome to come and learn. Coffee, tea and treats will be served.
The mansion will also be open to the general public during this time for touring the site. The site consists of a two-and-one-half story restored Victorian house and a restored 1903 carriage house.

Unique exhibits feature the restoration process, architectural style changes and furniture used by several governors.
The Former Governors’ Mansion State Historic Site is open year-round. Winter hours, now in place through May 15, are the second Friday and Saturday of each month from 1 to 5 p.m. Admission is free.
