Background: Each year the Governor and First Lady select a theme for the decorations in the Governor's Mansion. Community volunteers and organizations are invited to decorate accordingly, generously providing their time, talent and supplies as they turn the beautiful historic mansion into a tribute to the season. Built in 1902 by prominent mining magnate and U.S. Senator Thomas Kearns and his wife, Jennie, the mansion was donated to the State of Utah in 1937.
