Alabama Governor's Mansion open for candlelight tours 3 nights in December


MONTGOMERY, Alabama — The Governor's Mansion in Montgomery will be open for candlelight tours the first three Monday nights in December.

Designers from across the state have volunteered their time to decorate the mansion and the neighboring Hill House for candlelight tours. First lady Dianne Bentley says the mansion belongs to the people of Alabama and she wants to share it with the public during the holiday season.

The tours are from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on December 1, 8 and 15. Choirs from different parts of the state will entertain during the tours.

Tickets for the tours are free and are available at the mansion gift shop prior to the tours each day.
