Statement of Significance (as of designation - June 7, 1988):
Located within the Capitol Square in Richmond, the Executive Mansion is a finely proportioned, rectangular, two story brick residence constructed between 1811 and 1813 from a design by Alexander Parris (1780-1852). Only the White House is an older executive residence in the United States still used for its original purpose; similarly, decisions made here have had effects which ranged far beyond the borders of the State of Virginia.
