Former Governor’s Mansion Faces Either Tear-Down or Preservation


(AP) — North Dakota is taking suggestions for preserving the current governor’s residence, but only for a short time before going through with plans to tear it down.

The state’s facility management director, John Boyle, says an advertisement will go out in June to receive the proposals for moving and preserving the 10,000-square-foot home completed in 1960. If no proposals come in by mid-July, the home will be demolished.

The Legislature authorized $4 million from the state’s Capitol Building Fund and $1 million from private donations to construct a new 13,600-square-foot governor’s mansion.

Supporters say building a new official home for the governor is more cost-effective than renovating the aging residence. Work is on track for the governor to move in to a new home by Thanksgiving.
