The Governor's Mansion in South Carolina

South Carolina Governor's Mansion
Columbia, South Carolina

Built in 1855 as officer's barracks of the Arsenal Academy, it is the only building of the school to escape Sherman's burning.  Landscaped and remodeled, the building is now a showplace for tourists.
