The Governor’s Mansion was once the home of former Governor Jesse McDonald and is located just a half block off of Leadville’s main street, which means you can walk to all of Leadville’s restaurants, shops, and museums. You’ll be surrounded by the highest mountains in the Colorado Rockies, where majestic scenery blends with a lively history. Former Governor, Jesse McDonald, who sought and found his fortune in Leadville, built this big house to entertain guests as they traveled through town.
