We were the only 2 people on our tour, so maybe that's why it was so fun ---- but really, our guide was interesting, and we learned a lot on our tour. He took his time, which let us really look around and take in the details. Des Moines' governor is lucky to have such a gem available to him!

We had a lovely time touring the grounds of Terrace Hill. Beautiful home, beautiful grounds and the most interesting conversation with the Governor and First Lady. Would highly recommend this attraction to all.

This house is beautiful and full of stories. We really enjoyed the tour and loved seeing it. The beautiful staircase with the stained glass window was marvelous. The whole property was really great to see.

We did a drive-by of Terrace Hill. It's a beautiful property. Now the Iowa Governor's Mansion, previously the Hubbell Family Home.
