This undated black and white photograph features the Governor's mansion in Jackson, Mississippi. The mansion is a two-story masonry structure painted white, basically rectangular in plan. Its front facade is five bays wide, each bay articulated by pilasters with scrolled capitals; bays on the side elevations are separated by doubled pilasters. The center bay is larger, and is fronted by a two-story half-round portico supported by four columns. A full entablature encircles the building, ending in a dentillated cornice below the roof line. Trees are pictured in front and to the side of the mansion, partially obscuring the view of it. The title of the photograph is printed along the top of the image.
