Gov. Gary Herbert and first lady Jeanette Herbert will open the doors to the Governor's Mansion for five days in December, inviting guests to enjoy their beautifully decorated home during the holiday season. Visitors can walk through the historic Kearns Mansion from 2 to 4 p.m. on Dec. 2, 7, 9, 14 and 16.

Free tours will be guided by members of the Utah Heritage Foundation. Parking is available on the east side of the mansion off H Street, with entrance to the grounds from the east gate.

Built in 1902, the chateauesque mansion was renovated and restored in 1996. The property is decorated annually for the holidays by professional designers throughout Utah who donate their time and service.
