On this site lived three Presidents of the United States, Monroe and Tyler as Governors and William Henry Harrison while his father, Benjamin Harrison, signer of the Declaration of Independence, was Governor. The first house on this site was also home to Governors Patrick Henry and Henry Lee, father of Robert E. Lee.

The present house, first occupied by Governor James Barbour in 1813, was designed by Alexander Parris and built by Christopher Tomkins. As the home of Virginia's Chief Executives since that date, it is the oldest continuously occupied official Governor's residence in the Nation.

In 1989, the exterior of the mansion was restored to its circa 1830 appearance under the direction of the Citizens' Advisory Council for Interpreting and Furnishing the Executive Mansion.
