The public is being given a final opportunity to tour the North Dakota governor's mansion before it's demolished.
The 10,000-square-foot residence on the Capitol grounds is being replaced by a $5 million mansion that's 13,500 square feet.
The state's Facility Management Division has scheduled an open house at the existing residence from 1-7 p.m. today.
The ranch-style home was completed in 1960 and has been home to nine governors. The new home will be the third official residence built for North Dakota's governors. The original was constructed in 1884 and still stands a few blocks south of the Capitol.
The new home is in the final stages of construction and is expected to be ready for occupancy next month. Demolition of the old home could begin as early as February.
