First Lady Linda Daugaard announced this week that weekly public tours of the governor's mansion will begin on Wednesday, June 6.
Tickets can be obtained in advance, at no charge, from the Pierre Chamber of Commerce.
"Dennis and I are pleased to welcome visitors to see this beautiful home," she said. "It is an honor to live here, but we want to share it with all South Dakotans because it belongs to them."
This is the second summer that public tours will be offered at the governor's mansion.
Beginning June 6, weekly public tours will be conducted each Wednesday in June, July, and August (with the exception of July 4, Independence Day; no tour that week).
The 30-minute tours, for groups of up to 30 people, will begin at 10 a.m. CDT, 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 2 p.m., and will be conducted by volunteers, including the First Lady. Tour tickets (free) must be obtained in advance and will be available only from the Pierre Chamber of Commerce.
Those people interesting in arranging a tour should call the Chamber of Commerce at (605) 224-7361.
