In its six decades of existence, the Arkansas Governor’s Mansion, which sits in the middle of Center Street near downtown Little Rock, has played a prominent role in Arkansas history and has had its share of national attention. Now, much of that history is available in a new book from John Gill, who opens the doors of the mansion to reveal how the building and its occupants have changed through the years. It also provides a unique glimpse into the everyday lives of the governors and their families.

John P. Gill is an attorney and historian who lives in Little Rock, Arkansas. He also is the author of The Crossroads of Arkansas and Post Masters: Arkansas Post Office Art in the New Deal.
