Gov. Mike Dunleavy and first lady Rose Dunleavy will host the annual open house at the Governor’s Mansion on Tuesday, Dec. 10.

The mansion will be open from 3-6 p.m., said a spokesperson from the governor’s office, Lauren Giliam. There will be musical entertainment and more than 15,000 cookies and 100 pounds of fudge, Giliam said.

“They have all been made in-house,” Giliam said. “It took months.”

Visitors will have a chance to shake hands with the governor and members of his cabinet, and there will be photo opportunities, Giliam said.

“If anyone has special accessibility needs, they are invited to show up at 2:30, and we’ll put them in touch with the house manager,” Giliam said.

The mansion, located at 716 Calhoun Ave., was built in 1912. Gov. Walter Clark held the first open house there in 1913.
