For the Locals: Tour the Governor's Mansion

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Governor Bill Haslam and First Lady Crissy Haslam have started a new holiday tradition by inviting the public to tour Tennessee's executive residence.

"Tennessee's Home for the Holidays" is a free open house event at the executive residence during the first two weeks in December.

Crissy Haslam actually started planning and choosing decorations back in June. Each live tree was selected by a Tennessee tree farm and is unique to each room.

In Conservation Hall alone, there are 16 trees. Students sent in ornaments based on their favorite children's book.

Self-guided tours of the mansion start next Monday and run daily on the weekdays through December 16.

Those interested should register online at the First Lady's website: www.tn.gov/firstlady
